Pansies and Tin
This recent painting taught me the value of color temperature. The background was done with prussian blue and transparent oxide red (my two favs). My first foreground was a cool mix and very light. I scraped and explored several options until I landed on this one. Eureka! My intention was to bring attention to the foreground. BAM! There she is! So in fact, the placement of warm and cool colors can play significant roles if you think them through.
To bad I dont use blue in my house...
