Hi! Happy Tuesday! Today's tip is on one of my favorite subject, color theory; specifically on chromatic fringe.
It is the red fringe or hot saturated color you see at the edge of cast shadow and where it meets the light area. The rougher the object edge casting the shadow or the further away the object is, the more red fringe you'll see. This is different than chromatic abberation, which is color fringing caused by lens failure. You can see chromatic fringe with your eyes. The more you paint from life and make observation, the easier it is to see. It's one of those things that once you see it, you cannot unsee. :) XO,
ps. On stylized painting, where you want to have a hard edge on a shadow, you don't always have to put it. Like everything in art, you can choose to put something in or not. But it's always good to know your basic and know the rules before breaking it. Happy painting!

Our friends @shannon_tindle and @mb_papersculpt gave us a few awesome chairs over the weekend. I know! We have the most generous friends and we love them so much! And the chairs too and Whiskey seems to think all the chairs are his 😊 Here is a painting of him with the Plycraft lounge chairs and the next photo is him modeling my painting. My goal this year is to paint loose and not be too fuzzy with it.
Ps. We are having etsy sale -- 20% off for order over $50, happy shopping
Happy first Tuesday of 2018! First tip of the year is some of the different type of "Pants". My favorite are harem and culotte. They are so cute when it's being pair with a dainty stiletto. I can't get enough of them. Which one is your favorite?
Ps. We are having an Etsy sale; link on profile. Happy shopping!
Happy 2018!!!! Have a great one! These are Anna's final outfit with hair up and hair down. I did over a few dozen iteration on her goat and yulebell embroidery alone. It's all in the details. Perfect for an OCD person like me.
