In college, my professors fussed about us using “tube color” – colors straight out of the tube. We were encouraged to neutralize our colors. When I created paintings after college I tried to continue to mix colors that way. But then fans of my work complained that they missed my bright colors. This is one of several paintings I made in response to that complaint. I still make a point of using brighter colors.
