Crayola - Daily Painting by Darren Maurer

6" x 3"
Sometimes the best paintings are the most simple. I placed the Crayola right in the center of the composition. I'm not one that usually has symmetrical composition in my work. I think in this case the very balanced composition does make the painting better. I also used a warm background color which makes the painting softer by not having a high contrast area in the subject. This is painting 259 in my Painting A Day Series. Painting Sold

Darren - its funny the way a painting can evoke memories or feelings - this one does that very thing. It reminds me of being up in my room and coloring late into the night - you know, the way the light seems to strike things when its late and you're growing tired. I love this painting -
