Inspired by Peter Max
Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series III
18 x 18 x 2 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas
I haven’t painted an interior for some time and have had
Peter Max on my mind for awhile so decided to start off the
New Year with some inspiration from him. I always like painting
with him because of his use of bold colors.
He does a great job of mixing primary colors with pastel colors
in one composition. Always loved that about him. He certainly is
not afraid to mix and paint whatever and how ever he wants and
not according to the “so called rules” of thumb for artists of using
the same palette and genre all the time. So boring!
