Sometimes you just want to paint with really thick paint and have some fun!

Hot Chocolate - sold

Well this cup DID have hot chocolate in it.

This is part of my series of exploration of complementary colors - today the orange and blue/purple colors, and yellow/purplish. The previous painting of the Red Cup was an exploration of a warm red and teal/turquoise. This exploration of complements is in reference to the Munsell Color Wheel.
