Color Stories: Neutral and Brights
This is a painting done by Felix Vallotton. View of a Paris Street, 1895. Gouache on cardboard.
Felix was one of the Nabis.
You can learn more about them if you google them but basically they were a group of young radical painters who formed an artistic brotherhood in Paris in 1889.
Their common aim was to make art part of everyday life. LOVE THAT!!
I love this particular painting for not only the subject matter but the COLOR as well. Love the neutrals mixed with the pops of bright color. Lovely work.
I am done with my wreath. Not sure if I like it yet. I will hopefully get to take some pics tomorrow if the weather improves any.
