msue already "second" that your article is great... so I guess I have to "third" to the same http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif
The points you are making about color contrast are both well articulated and show really well in your painting.

Thanks for a very good article.

thanks all...appreciate your comments! I was sorted sweatin bullets at where to start something with color. I mean, there are color theory books inches thick...the obvious seemed to be with work I had already done. Again..thanks

Larry, just wanted to say the lesson was well presented and easy to understand. Hope you are keeping all these for further use in a book...."Sail Thru the Tough Stuff" by L.Seiler.

Thanks again folks. I feel blessed to have your kind comments.

I will be working next on a lesson that will be geared toward understanding good composition.

I missed this article & have no idea as to where to find it... http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/frown.gif Cheryl

Hi Cheryl...

It was a how to, posted on April 6th...
All how-to's are archived and available, but on the WetCanvas home page, it is not real obvious how to get to those. Go to "News" (why called "news" I don't know..perhaps Scott might consider calling it a different name such as "archives") At any rate, a search engine for Wetcanvas is there, and to the left side is a listing of months. You can thus, click onto a month...and find ALL the how-to's and going's on for that month.

To save you time, here is the url for my instructional, which I hoped would give a great deal of information on color, achieving contrasts to make believable realism, and composition- Larry http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/wink.gif
