If yellow represents happiness and optimism, then ochre, (yellow with a distinctive dinginess) represents those same sentiments with a dose of healthy realism added to the mix. It’s a color I have always been partial to because of its versatility. It can be used as a neutral or as a contrast.
Here is a sampling of miniature paintings (ACEOs) I have coming up over the next couple of months on ebay at http://www.ebay.com/usr/monroart. I am very excited about sharing these new little creations which make lovely gifts for the holidays and are collected by art lovers around the world.
