Color Harmony/Secondary Triad/Riverbend
Recently I have been very involved in my Deer Grazing painting (still unfinished). For it I chose a triad of secondary colors: green, orange, violet. My dominant hue was the orangey gold, but it was a very low chroma palette. Today I decided to employ the same triad but instead of orange, the dominant color was to be violet and I wanted to heighten the chroma as would be natural for the light of the morning. Intention is half the battle. or the battle plan. Next comes the hard work of the soldiers moving according to what the opponent does/or doesn't do.. Without the plan...you can never win.
I am posting 2 different paintings today because I will be traveling tomorrow. See ya on Sunday.
