This painting is for a color theory class I'm taking at work. Not my usual, but a good lesson in lemons. And in warm vs cool reds--who knew red could be cool? If I learned nothing else, it is that alizarin crimson is 'like digging a hole in the canvas.'
Coming up: 7 ornaments and a horizon. Figuring out the difference between warm and cool blues is the next lesson.
How did I make it this far without any color formal color theory? Are all the REAL artists laughing behind my back because it's obvious to them I'm clueless?!
