Fiesta

"Fiesta"  (pastel, 7x5 inches) click here to bid

I was getting a little more adventurous in my colors today (or maybe I was just in a hurry - sometimes that works...) and I found one of my favorite color combinations in her shadowed side. I just love pitting that warm green against the hot orange of the same value. It makes the green look very cool in comparison. I really did see these colors in her coat... sort of. She was probably standing next to another brown cow that sent that warm afternoon light bouncing back.

Anyway, when thinking of a name, I thought, hey, these are all great Fiesta colors! I know Fiesta is not until April, but... the name already stuck.
