got passion?

Arches CP 300 gsm, 10" x 14".

nick sent an email with several photos of castagnet in a painting workshop; it was his usual purple dreck, and painted rapidly. yes, it's remarkable, he can make a painting in 10 minutes. (it's the passion.)

when i recovered from the resulting spate of nausea, i wondered ... gee, how fast can i make a painting? i did this one in four minutes ... from imagination ... with passion.

once you stereotype the elements (shadow = purple, figure = box on two sticks, etc.) it's surprising how quickly a painting can fall off the brush. but then what? and so what?

I suppose you have a problem with my little men(boxes with two columns) walking into the composition with the sun on their little round hats too...you do don't you??
So whats wrong with purple shadows?
...yellow sun=purple shadows...complimentaries right?
