Your post pushed me in the right Fauvist direction--and the Schmid color chart work I've been doing paid off. I'm still working on this painting, but it's taking on the feeling I want it to have.
The colors here are not as vivid as they are on the actual canvas-- in fact, nowhere near as vivid. But it was a very good day at the office. Tomorrow will be as good when I attack the lower half. I can't wait.
