For my piece this week, I wanted to focus on complementary colors using acrylic paint. I decided to create three small landscape paintings and to explore a complementary color pair in each painting. For each of the paintings, I limited my palette to only two complements plus white. I used the same process for each painting. I started with an underpainting using a thin coat of the warm color of the complementary pair (orange, yellow, red). The next step was to sketch the basic shapes and dark values with the cool complementary color (blue, violet, green). Next, I mixed white into the color I chose on my palette to block in the sky (blue, violet, red) considering atmospheric perspective. I then mixed the complementary colors together to create neutral tones to block in foliage in the distance, etc.
