Black and Yellow

  Black and Yellow is part of a series that focuses on the female figure reading.  I've began titling these works with the color choices I selected.  In the past, my works were very grey and subdued.  My subject matter was the urban cityscape, which didn't lend itself to a rainbow of colors.
