NEW WORK IN PROGESS

Here's a painting I started Monday. Bear in mind it's only an underpainting.
I'm not accustomed to using olive green. In fact I can't remember the last time it was in any of my work. It's been on my mind to use the color since summer so here goes...
I'll post it upon completion.

Michele-
thanks. i wasn't sure at first but now that it's finished (today!) i think it has much depth and a pleasing contrast to the aqua.

Pete-
Thank you. Now if I could only get a decent photograph of the finished painting...It's not really a good weather day for shooting and yet I persist...

I love the aqua with the olive. It makes me think of a pool in a green and brown lawn or a glimpse of tropical sky just before a storm.
