I have been writing a brochure so I have not been
painting. I do think I am finished with "The Grotto"
so here it is. For some reason this piece has been
difficult getting the values right. It has been looking
good in photos but in person it has been too dark.

Harry thank you so much and I, too, am glad to have found yours. It is very entertaining. I have to admit I am going to have to look up tachisme.

Katherine said...

Hi Yvette. Thanks for the high complement. You are really rich, just not in classic terms.

Katherine said...

tach·isme or tach·ism (tāsh'ĭz'əm)
n. A French school of art originating in the 1950s and characterized by irregular dabs and splotches of color applied haphazardly to the canvas.

I think this is (again) a gorgeous and very inspiring painting Katherine. So rich of colours. I cannot imagine it is too dark, because the colours are so bright. :-)

Sweet greetz for you!

Momo Luna thank you for the feedback. I am happy to hear this as I worked it to correct the values.
