I started this painting thinking I would paint a colorful fall scene. It is grey outside and I know color is uplifting. Then my mind went to spring and the cheerfulness of colors at that time and this is what I came up with. The title is a Danish word for color. I get up every morning and do a lesson on teach yourself Danish so I thought that was appropriate.
Gesso board is a smooth surface that absorbs the transparent paint and allows you to scrape into the board to get the nice whites. It reminds me a bit of watercolor painting.
I had quite a technology challenge getting this one posted. My photo wouldn't update on the computer. I finally gave up and thought it needed to have a sleep first and we were both better off for it. Grrrr.
