Steve Penley - Untitled

When looking through Penley's online gallery, this piece stood out because of its vibrant red background. It displays all three of the primary colors as well as a few complimentary color combinations. Although the piece is a bit abstract, the color palette stays true to life. Aside from the red background, blue is the second most used color. The blue is spread throughout the painting; and in some spots, comes in direct contact with yellow. There is also a small spot of read in the in the flowers that is placed near green.

  1. I really like the brush strokes in this painting and how the colors were not blended fully, I think it adds a good texture to the painting. The contrast is also nice.
