Plum and Red One, abstract painting by Carol Engles

8 x 11 acrylic on paper. I usually use red as a highlight, not as a dominant color in a painting. In this piece, red is more dominant and I think it turned out well. I like the combination of red with the plum and then the surprise addition of aqua and the flesh color. I will have to try this combination in a larger format as well.
