“Morning Joe”

Man I do love my coffee in the morning!

There are a couple things I was interested in with this painting. First I used a ground that was a bright pink. I chose it because I knew the final painting would have a lot of blue in it. Wanted to see how the colors would react with each other. I like the results but I think I like a warmer red better. The other thing I was interested in the way light can bleach colors from items. At night our eyes do not perceive colors well but I’ve noticed a similar loss of color when flooded with light. Interesting.
