Have you ever had that feeling that you are in a “relationship” with a specific colour?! For me, it’s definitely red! Like the Winsor Red by Winsor & Newton, used in many of my paintings, e.g. “Flamenco Rhythms”, “Tomato Red”, “Valentine’s Day Bird”, “Study of a Male Northern Cardinal”, etc.

Winsor Red is also prominent in my recent figurative painting called “Red Immersion”, in which the entire non-nude area has been “immersed” in red. See the painting steps below.
