Description of Dialogue in Red

I’m interested in both the psychological and the visual effects of color but never quite know what color I will use when starting a painting it’s more instinctual how I feel that day as in the case of Dialogue in Red the painting began with random marks and shapes in blues and greens adrift or floating in the background of the piece then as the painting progressed the reds and oranges began to dominate the piece  and the random marks became ghostly marks lurking behind the red field once the painting reached that stage I felt it needed something definitive in contrast but organic to the dominant red field and so a circular shape grew into a cluster the final focal point
