Oops. I just discovered that I never logged out and I've been gone all day. (I keep doing that, which means that most of the time when it looks like I'm online, I'm out to lunch.)
Thanks, Patti. I'd like to be less conservative sometimes in my color palette, and this was my first step. I've seen a lot of paintings recently (both traditional and digital media) that use really wild colors, even in portraits, and it works. I want to study these more to figure out why it doesn't look weird and wrong. I don't want to paint on the wild side all the time, but just have the option.
