"Out of the Dark" - SOLD
Here's purple/orange/green again, though in different proportions than yesterday. I was introduced to the idea of dominant color in Harley Brown's book, "Eternal Truth's for Every Artist" (a fabulous book I mention a lot that is unfortunately no longer in print). The idea is that you have a dominant color (one general color that takes up the most room in the painting) and then less of some other colors. Harley suggests using the compliment of that color and then what he calls discords, but I think the "other" colors can be just about anything. It's something I love to experiment with!
