100 Garden & Floral Oil Paintings, Original Artwork by Pam Holnback, 73/100

A Second Coreopsis
6" x 6" Oil
SOLD

With this coreopsis, I used the purple complement for most of the dark and shadows, with touches of cad orange.  This darkens by graying a bit, and the effect is not as cool as the previous painting.

This one is so perfect, Pam. I like your discussions of the shadow sides of yellow... always agony!

The color palette in this is very attractive. It drew me right in. Very nice.

Kelley, Thank you. I often agonize over yellow. Cools, warms, grays???

Thank you so much Sherry.

Susan, Thank you!
