Description:

Greens radiate across a cadmium yellow face to Vincent’s coat and the background of black and with blue dashes.  Green and red in vest with green cravat and emerald lapels.  vertical green and deep yellow to ochre jacket with green carrying through to background.  color experiment with thick brushtrokes with a pointillist influence but becoming more of his own interpretation of creating emotion through both colors and their positioning relative to one another and using thick application for increased effect.

 

cobalt blues, yellows, browns, green in shadows and ascot
