Don't you love the names of nail polish colors? These two are called "Bewitching", and "Plum Seduction". I had a hard time replicating the intensity of the colors, even after I pulled out my Gablin "Quinacridone Magenta". Before I started this painting today, I did a few 10 minute studies to warm up.....interesting to see how much energy the paintings have in these quick studies. Now how to transfer that to the finished painting. I"ll practiced tomorrow with the letter "O".

  1. Love the composition and the purity of colours!!

  2. So crisp and straight forward your colors. I so enjoyed my visit to your blog. It is quite refreshing.
