Sketch for StaircasesPosted: January 15, 2013
Orange, green and purple. Secondary colours are not my usual palette. I haven’t researched enough about other painters to see if they do this but I seem to always reach for the same colour combinations and they tend towards blues and yellows with some reds thrown in. But it is probably good to break these habits so I am going to turn this into a bigger painting. I have been wanting to paint some of Montreal’s iconic outdoor staircases and this unshoveled one was so perfect next to its darker green neighbour.
