Arboral Warmth


It has been a busy few months in the Slack household. My daughter was born at the end of December, which has been wonderful. I am taking care of her during the day. She helps me see the world in a whole new way. Sometimes she will sit with me in her bouncer and kick while I paint.

This is one of the first paintings I have done since she was born. It is monochromatic in nature, which means it basically uses one color. That color is yellow. I have intense yellow, and dull yellow, warm yellow and cool yellow, dark yellow (brown) and light yellow. I did add a little red for some spice.

This technique is a great way to create a mood in artwork.

This painting also evokes the landscape.
