Stormy Pink Field

This is a 10x14 watercolor with pastel. I think that grey skies can be contrasted by brighter pastels accents. I hope to use grey in my geometric abstracts as well. If I get really brave, I will try to do some work with shades of grey and then add one color. I usually have to use a lot of color, so that would be a good exercise for me.

OK, OK, if I HAD to pick a fav, it would be this one. Again, the palette is electric.

Thank you for your comments. I am learning to use grey with pink. Your portrait on your blog is wonderful? Is it a self-portrait?
