Brilliant pallette

Simultaneously with Pear with Berry Spoon, I am working on a large painting for an old college friend. This is just the very beginning wash of the painting, one where I lay down the basic colors to guide me as I move towards layering and detail work. This painting features a brilliant pallette of purples, oranges and reds, tempered with a ribbon of complementing greens and blues. Sounds wild, yes? It is promising to be a gorgeous grouping of my favorite pallette of color! 

Keep an eye on this posting as it will hopefully materialize gradually into a painting of silver, tulips and persimmons, interesting light play and composition.
