God Loves the Color Red



Hi, This is oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas. I wanted this to feel like a cloudy rainy day. I used grayed down colors for everything but my little gal. I wanted the red umbrella to pop and I used a palette knife to lay it in. When my little gal went out to walk in the rain God loved her red umbrella so much that the sky radiated and reflected that glorious red. Just what I thought about after I finished it, crazy?

Barb, I think you've hit the nail on the head!! Love it!

Barbara Pask said...

Thank you Carol, they do have a moody feel to them don't they?

Barbara Pask said...

I'm glad you think so Nina, thank you! <3

Did you start with a toned panel? I like the touches of warmth throughout the entire painting. Grey days lend themselves to saturated color. Your red pops!

Hi Debra, I did tone this one with burnt sieana but it went through a lot of changes. At one point I had the sky raining red, lol. I like the feel of it now.

The umbrella makes a strong focal point, Barbara!

Your thought wasn't crazy at all. This looks like the perfect setting for God to touch one of his creations. :)
