12 Responses to “Loss”

    • Really? I’m not sure. I keep wanting to use brighter colours, then when I do I think ‘those colours are a bit bright!’

      • ha! I know the feeling! But it’s not just that pink, acid yellow and green – which should just look awful together, but which you pull into harmony here – it’s the overall synthesis and expression of feeling (for me). Your use of grays (greys!) hangs this together – as it does for many otherwise brightly colored works.

    Great balance of colours.
    Done outside or studio recollection?

    • Thank you, but I’m not sure about that pink. Done at home. I ‘m tending, at the moment, to come back to sketches/photos that have been milling around in my mind for months. It gives the illusion that I’m taking more time to think.

        Pink gets a bad press as cutesy
        I’m a fan of pink in composition as colour blocks or mixed for example with greens as complex neutrals.

        • I did a coloured sketch of this in conte crayon a while ago and liked the pink. It had more of an impact with paint though. I think it can more often be aggressive than cutesy – that I quite like. Interesting how people respond to the colour, it unnerved me. The title ‘loss’ has actually been shortened from ‘loss of confidence’!
