Wind Up Dino. 5x7. 2011.07.05

Here is today’s study in the Toy series.

This one is for those that love extra thick expressive paint.

I applied the paint somewhat thicker since that seems to be the nature of painting without thinner or medium these days.  But i do like that it has grit and form to it.  However, something to remember, even us artists have our off days and others are just totally disconnected.

I spent most of the day trying to push the contrast to pop the dinosaur with complements (opposites on color wheel) thinking Blue Green’s complement was Red Violet.  What was I thinking? Its more like Red Orange.    That helps.
