Complementary colors

This week in class we talked about complementary colors. 
We did a "kaleidoscope" exercise
 using two complementary colors plus white and black. 

First, we filled in spaces with 
each of the complementary colors right out of the tube. 
Then mix them together,
then add white and black to each and so on...
all spaces being filled with a different color. 

Cad scarlet and Cad green pale

Purple and Cad yellow

Then we painted a simple still life 
using complementary colors. 

It's a wonderful way to get 
beautiful neutrals and color harmony 
in our paintings.
