Crepe Myrtle

Crepe Myrtle
5" x 7"
Acrylic on Board

The palette for this painting is Ultramarine Blue, Cerulean Blue, Burnt Sienna, Pyrrole Red, Cad. Yellow Primrose, Raw Sienna,(Golden), and Brilliant Yellow Green (Liquitex) .  The grays are more of a neutral gray sometimes leaning to blue, red-blue and green-blue.  My camera has intensified the bluish tint in the grays.

This is a sweet painting Ann. I am always impressed with artists who can paint such detail on such a small size board. I have only been patient enough to do one painting in a small format--and not that small, 9 x 12. My hat is off to you.

I love the angle of the composition. And you did an amazing job with the glass.
Congratulations! I also love the riot of color below!

It's beautiful Ann. :) I love the colors you've used here and the angle of the image. Also the highlights on the glass are perfect. I'm glad to see an acrylic piece from you.
