Texture Tuesdays: RED

This is my RED letter day, well, RED texture day. I LOVE RED.
Over the many years that I have been painting, RED often pops up in tiny accents or BIG SPLASHES!!! RED is my husband's favorite color and actually RED followed by PINK are mine.

Before I share my texturized painting, a few paintings using RED as a focal point.  

Hard to believe, but this powerhouse painting is only 6 x 6 inches. The use of RED as a main color gives it a wow factor.  

 The yellow really POPS in this rendering of gorgeous sunflowers due to the various REDS used. 

 RED the dominant color....use of complimentary color important here.

I finally decided to try various textures on a painting I have previously shown.   The original painting Klimt's Sisters.

 Textures compliments of Kim Klassen.  I used Wisdom and Vintage Magicness.  They really changed the feeling of the painting, pulling your eye into the center focusing on the two main figures.

Have a lovely autumn day, thank you for dropping by. 
.............in fact have a RED LETTER DAY!!!! 

until next time, Sharon

  3. Sharon,
    What amazingly luscious reds! It is certainly clear that this is a favorite color for you and you wield it to such beautiful effect. The painting with the added texture does add a vignette effect that pulls your eye to the center.

  4. i am absolutely smitten with you and RED.

    love your paintings sharon and wish dreamily that we were neighbors.
