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.
