Abstract Mixed Media Painting "Operetta" by Colorado Mixed Media Abstract Artist Carol Nelson
This painting gets it's name from the musical symbols printed in the piece. There are textural elements as well, such as Egyptian papyrus paper, printed papers, and strips of painted watercolor paper. The close color harmony of the palette, primarily metallic tones of copper and bronze, with a touch of lavendar and red oxide, makes this painting soothing. The dramatic value (dark vs. light) shifts make it a dynamic piece.
