Compelling Complimentaries

This was a fun challenge for 
a rainy day. 
I took the reference for this early on in Gloucester
and have thought about it since. 
The splashes of yellow orange row boats 
against the blue water,
was compelling.  

Blue/Orange Study
8 x 8 oil 

I made myself work on this upside down
in order to keep the detail at a minimum.  

I find painting upside down 
forces me to look at the shapes of color next to each other,
while forgetting the actual subject.
