The woman in this painting comes originally from the painting: Woman; searching home
Looking at that painting, I felt that the woman therein had more to say. Through further inquiry and listening, I found there was more movement and emotion to be found in the original movement.
There is an interaction between the differing yellows that brings a liveliness to this painting. The shades of yellow were carefully chosen to create both a sense of movement and unity. The yellows were also worked to find the right sense of feeling through the relation with the blue-green color.
The blue-green color of the main movement is a unique color that I create, partially through mixing on the palette, and partially through glazing by hand rubbing layers of paint one on top of the other.
