Night Moon - Ruth Andre

"Night Moon"
4"x12" Acrylic on Arches Paper
by Ruth Andre

I thought I would try and work with a very subdued and limited palette on this new painting. I am working on contrast whether it is using just a few colors or many. Getting a dramatic change or accent is important and also one of the hardest things for me to remember at times. It is so easy to stay with a quiet palette and not move on to make a more dramatic painting. I see reasons for doing both but of late I wanted to make a statement punch. I follow several artist's blogs and websites and I have found a few artists that influence me with their strong creative spirit. 

It has been, "A Painting Day".

I like what you are doing with contrast, it really does make a strong statement.
