Just for Fun

Big Chick
12" x 12" Acrylic & Caran d'Ache on wrapped canvas

Earlier this month I had an opportunity to watch Steven Assael work his magic painting the portrait of a lovely model on a board toned bright red - not burnt sienna but RED! Steven's portraits seem to glow from within and are so very beautiful. Not quite ready to try a portrait on this ground, a larger than life "chicken" succulent rosette was less intimidating! Working in acrylic and without spending too much time, this carefree exercise was fun as I tried not to cover all the red! Who says I'm afraid of color?!!
