All of a sudden I’m painting with lots more color and using thicker paint. I can’t really explain why except it truly feels like summer and things should be more colorful. I’m also using some new synthetic bristle brushes which I like a lot. They’re Silver Bristlon (brights) in various sizes and I got them online from Dick Blick.

I am enjoying your current use of colour.
Thanks! Change is good, right? I’m always influenced by the seasons… funny thing, I used bright red last year about this time in paintings of the forest
I am enjoying your addition of color! Summer and sunshine invites the use of color. In my world anyway.
Yes, Susan! Thanks!
Anita, another stunning painting here. That electric blue in the sky w/ the red – I just love it. It’s exuding so much positivity and exuberance!
Thanks so much, Patricia! Its’ been wonderful going to the lake and walking along and seeing all the beautiful boats and people enjoying being outside. Don’t you love summer?!!
That is totally beautiful! Well done!! I adore the colors!!!
Thank you so much, DoRo!!
The color is working, propelling this wonderful craft at top speed!
He he : ) … I wonder if it was a monochrome if it would seem slower… perhaps.

Very Sharp! The red and yellow draws you into the piece contrasted against the white of the ship really represents summer on lake Michigan! :)
