three little piggies
Articulate your color harmony. This blue skies and long shadows demanded a dynamic complementary color harmony: blue and orange. When choosing blue that meant I leaned all the violet shadows toward the bluer end of the spectrum. The fence in the distance appears blue. The sky has the thickest and highest value paint and pastel than any other place. I tried to keep the shadows transparent.
This beautiful field, next to Lake Needwood is destined for sacrifice. Soon they will build 12 new homes, this, near the ICC. Sad. As I was painting I kept thinking of the three little piggies (the trees) and the wolf (the ICC.)
