(149) Triad: Yellow Orange, Red Violet, Blue Green
This triad is probably my favorite so far. I thought yesterday's neutrals were gorgeous, but these teals, blues and lavenders are the best. I love the juxtaposition of the blue-greens with the peachy tones. (click to enlarge these for a better view)

Great colors Faye. Looks like you really enjoyed yourself. That bottom one has some great strokes.
How big are those?

Hi Frank--these are tiny--2x3 or 3x3, about the size of a post-it note. I'm using those inexpensive 9x12 canvas pads, or in some cases scrap pieces of leftover canvas. The strokes look lush because any brush is a "big" brush when painting that small. Note to self: use bigger brushes all the time...
