I enjoyed the process of free-piecing the log cabin assemblies and decided to use the same 4 colors but with red as the predominate color for the log cabins. The red called out for more lime green. Purple and turquoise played supporting roles.
And I think though this piece has the same elements it has a very different feel. I worked on this piece in frigid single digits temps and a snow storm. I’m wearing a lot of layers and taking breaks to put more wood in the stove. But the colors made me happy and soon I was singing Bob Marley’s song. So this piece has a name.
I worried a little that working with such bring, saturated color that I might not be paying enough attention to value but when I took black & white photos (something I often do when creating a composition) I was happy to see a decent mix of values:
Tomorrow I will start a different grid exercise. Time for a new palette. Something with blue. And with blue I will want orange and ??? If I’m more-or-less snowed in at least I can play.
