All of a sudden I started missing my three complementary palettes! Right in the middle of working on a book of primaries! Oh no! What to do? I just dove right back into my comfort zone of twenty odd years of complementary palettes! Feels so good! I suppose I will get back into my project, but a girls gotta have fun too!
The top one is the red/green palette and the bottom one is orange/blue. Miss you guys!

Kate brings up a good question about working from someone else's painting. Read below:
I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your book 'Big Art Small Canvas'.It is one of my favorite instruction books. Your work really is wonderful.Friends are encouraging me to sell the paintings I have finished from your book.I am not sure if this is legal or not and have seen many differing answers. Some instructors say yes, some no.What do you feel about this?Thank you,Kate
I told her it was the biggest complement anyone could give me! As long as she's not signing my name!
I've used other paintings as inspiration (and even my own paintings). What I usually do is title it "In Homage to " or "After". Since I work really small, it's obvious that I'm not trying to forge their work.
Does anyone have another way of handling this situation?

There's an article in November issue of the English magazine, Leisure Painter that I wrote on complementary palettes! I was worried that I didn't have the mandatory number of words but ended up with too many; they had to make it a two-parter, so rest of article will be in December issue! Magazine is available in some Barnes and Noble stores in the U.S. I have yet to see it!

Here's a review that I recently received that made me feel so good. It's an honor to be able to help other people on their artistic journeys! Thanks Lionel!
