Roses In A Square
8"x8" oil on raymar panel $200.
I am rather pleased with this one.
I feel the new fracturing marks work well
and I really like the colors.
I came up with the colors from a
I am using his waterlily work for
this month's Guild's focus
which is on Color harmony.
This one is the Analogous harmony
where you follow the color wheel.
In this case, green, blue,
with a dip into the purple.
Monet's emphasis was on the blues
Mine, the greens.
I had pre-mixed all the colors
that he used, testing them first
on the plastic sleeve
the photo was placed into.
I then used them in this still life.
The proportions of the colors
are different of course.
His lily colors are my roses
His green tree reflections are my leaves,
and the different blue colors
are my background.
His accent of purple is my vase.
Have you used a famous painting
to give you ideas for
your color harmony?
