Love it, Leslie. And what's wrong with "gray?"

Leslie Sealey said...

Lol! Gray or grey, it's beautiful to me. ;- )

Thanks Rob, I thought that umbrella would read like a big yellow "STOP" sign and grab attention. This one is so much prettier in person than online; I guess a lot of paintings are like that. The jpegs don't always capture subtle transitions, and there are some beautiful grays that are the same value but different hues and they don't show up here.

Hi Leslie - this painting autobiographical? Without grey the world would look all skittles. Gray is my favorite color. Grey creates depth like no other in nature. The gray in your painting makes that yellow pop like a balloon - terrific work all!

Leslie Sealey said...

W.K., you use grey to great effect in your own work-comments much appreciated!

Love these last two Leslie, your trademark calm - broad areas of peaceful and deep colour. Beautiful.

Thank you, Sheila!
