The softer muted colors of this little pail family drew me to paint them. Generally, I am attracted to grayed and softer tones, but currently what comes from my brush is very colorful. I am using a specific set of warm and cool versions of the primary colors at the present time, and I have not yet finished exploring possibility with them. This little scene reminded me of mother instructing her offspring of proper manners for young pails.
