Thank you for the double wow.

Debora L. Stewart said...

This is right up my alley. Love it and how the red just pops out at you. The mark making is great also.

Casey Klahn said...

Thanks you, Debora, for the detailed comment. The red pops, and the violet has some kind of energy going on.

Mary Zeran said...

I totally thought of Debora Stewart when I saw this palette! Nice color work!

Casey Klahn said...

Thank you, Mary. That is a high compliment!

The red marks say here we are and the violet invites me in to stay awhile. very nice.

Casey Klahn said...

Thanks, Kat! I am trying hard to avoid the word, "vibration." Trying...trying...

I'll say it... This is a real vibrating wildfire!

Dakota's having a sale on pastel boxes! They must have detected a pent-up demand. You don't suppose they saw your post, do you?

Casey Klahn said...

Sam breaks the ice. I did see that sale. Anyone use this Dakota Box?

Love that take-no-prisoners scarlet.

Powerful abstraction, Casey,the dark plummy purple really makes the brights sing - most enjoyable.

The red steals the show, but only because of the grayed colors nearby. Did that red really need a wingman? Heck, I'd ask her out!

I really enjoyed the comment about mark-making. That's what struck me. I like the marks themselves--and the decisive way they're laid down. Those two intense blue marks with the white nearby are making the whole thing vibrate nicely. They're front men, while the browns are having an argument. Quite a color pageant taking place here. I particularly like the characters in the lower left--the regular schmoes without whom none of this would be possible.

Katherine van Schoonhoven said...

I like the slideshow from the workshop, too! I'm sure there will be more to come. Congrats.
