Alpha Theta

When I started painting second coats of paint on my canvases, this is the first canvas I did. The dark green I used intimidated me. So I did not add dots to it right away. Finally I gathered the courage to attack the dark green. As you can see, I managed to add some very bright colors to counteract the dark background.

  1. That green sort of reminds me of the color they used to call some appliances a few years back--olive green, I think it was. Or maybe it was avocado. I never cared for it much as an appliance color, but you made it work well in this painting I think. :)

    The dark green certainly provides a contrast for my pastel colors.

    Thank you for your supportive feedback. : )
