Complimentary colours

Comment Finished date 2023-07-28
This is me trying something new; picking up the different strokes challenge at the acrylic board on Wetcanvas, using colour theory and painting a still life. I chose to do complementary colours; blue-violet and yellow orange, in addition also using black and white. Media Acrylic
Canvas No brand
Size 24 x 30 cm

My attempt when I felt done

I chickened out a bit in the beginning, doing a kind of an underpainting in black and white.
When I got going a bit with the colours, I let the comfortable black and white rest.

With the colours I picked, maybe half-way through the painting, just getting a bit more comfortable.
