Foggy Road

Foggy Road, 5 x 7
Fog... love it. My next four posts will be some small fog "color" studies (done in my studio). I know that sounds like an oxymoron, but here's the deal... while I was painting fog in the field, I was painting fast & fursiously and found the foggy greys through intuition. Back in my studio, I have attempted to discover greys in a more intentional way. These next studies were basically painted in two colors plus white - mixing them to find some rather delicious greys. This one was painted with mixtures of orange and blue.

Gorgeous effect. You've nailed it.
Such great atmosphere and perspective.
This seems to be a totally different approach
for you. I really like what you're doing.

Hi Laurel,

Right now I'm working on a painting that requires a bright, but dark grey. I'm not one to use grey often, but your thoughts on it will certainly help. I love how vibrant this painting is. How it reads as both calm, and exciting.
