Ready for Her Closeup ~~ Kimberly Kelly Santini


 
 
 

"Ready For Her Closeup," 8" x 10", portrait of Tallulah, who I've been told is the Carol Burnett of poodles. This painting was done in Golden Open Acrylics on Ampersand Gessobord, with multiple in process photos inside the Mobile Uploads folder on the studio's Facebook page.

 
I've got a couple of exhibitions in mind for Tallulah - we'll send her off on a world tour, shall we? Meanwhile, if you can't wait for her to come to a town near you, the painting can be yours for $469. 

 
Thanks, as always, for looking at and sharing my artwork,
Kim


Complementary Colors
 

When choosing the palette for your painting (or even a room in your home), consider colors that fall opposite each other on the color wheel.

 
When placed together, they create a visual tingle.

 
Hence my choice of the faded orange couch to complement the pale blue pillows.

 
Tallulah doesn't have a speck of black in her. She's a variety of blues and purples, with just a couple splashes of that orange. Again, complements.

 
She sits there with anticipation, amped up even more so by her surroundings. Just like a queen.
