"Color Triad" - SOLD

Well I have to admit I didn't plan this, but where I tend to go for a complimentary or split-complimentary color scheme, this time it turned out to be triadic. Orange/purple/green. All the secondary colors. I haven't read much about color theory - I must admit - most of what I know comes from looking at art & experimenting. I generally start with what looks good through my viewfinder, and if something isn't working I look to my color wheel as a possible problem solver.

My least favorite color is orange but for some reason this painting really caught my attention. Good color contrasts.

I love all the colors and am looking forward to learning the Munsell color wheel with you. I got a book from the library on it and it was like a math book. NO color plates just illustrations done 3d in globe style.
Scared me so much I couldn't wait to take it back! I'm more of a visual and intuitive colorist.
Another beautiful painting.
