Hello all,

Did you have a fun, perhaps even artistic weekend? Another week has begun, and I am back with another blog post! Today features one of my latest paintings, titled “Ocean Dawn.” This impressionistic landscape painting, captures the essence of the morning as dawn breaks above majestic purple mountains; the light flickering across the waves far below.

I am continuing to explore harmonious color palettes in “Ocean Dawn.” This work contains a triadic color scheme of a creamy yellow, a mellow purple hue, and a light blue/grey mix. For those of you who may not be familiar with color theory, a triad palette features colors that are evenly spaced along the color wheel. When balanced correctly, these tones create a dazzling vibrancy, each playing off the other in a celebratory manner. Typically, one color will dominate slightly, and the other two provide support and accent to it. In my painting above, the yellow of the morning light takes the spotlight, with the blue/grey mix, providing counterpoint and shadow to the former in the clouds, and the soft purple of the mountains provides weight and structure to the simple, but complete composition.

Here is an example of a color wheel, the colors that you see in my painting fall in between those shown below[1] as indicated by the lines:
