Dazzling Leaves

Peak Color, 6x6" oil on museum quality panel, ©2012, Fay Terry

This is another version of the Dogwood tree I painted a couple of days ago and I am pleased with the result. This time I massed in the tree with a combination of Alizarin Crimson and Venetian Red.  This was dark but not bright, allowing the brighter colors I added later to stand out much more. Also I did not add any white to lighten the leaf colors so they remained stronger.
 I decided the contrast of blue sky in the background helps make the tree really pop. I may do a larger version of this one.
