Color Picking for Familia


One of the most interesting parts of creating sculpture is finding the right color for a piece that fits the mood, form and intended space. After many tests and trials from blue to white, I finally landed on using a deep orange red, like a juicy red pepper. Painting can be decidedly noxious and that's why I'm glad I have good friends like Lee Imonen who are willing to help spread paint fast and furiously before it sets. Even Tamaio couldn't resist taking a peek at the color choice.
