The Power of Red

A couple of posts ago, I spoke of the power of a white shape.  White shapes have to be carved out.  In this painting of a local theatre here in Apalachicola, I used the local color of red to be the positive shape.  Being such an aggressive color, the red draws you in to the focal point.  Add a few figures waiting to purchase their tickets and you have an area of color and people who form the interest in the painting.

Happily, the painting sold to the owner of the theatre!
