At first I thought I might be making a mistake with the bright orangey-yellow on his coat. It was so bright. But once I painted the burnt sienna and burnt umber around it, the coat glistened.
When I make what appears to be a bold color choice, I need to listen to that inner artistic voice rather than the intellectual one which says, "what are you doing?? you are going to ruin it!"
The artistic voice says, "give it a try," "be bold," and "you can always paint it out if it doesn't work, so why not?"
