Orange and Blue

pleinair_feb_warmtrees It’s sort of shocking how differently two paintings can come out – these two images were painted in the same field, in the same weather, just a day apart – one turned out orange and the other turned out blue. I only realized it when I had them scanned and next to each other on the computer. I’d like to become a little more conscious of my color choices in the future –  though I painted them both as true to life as I could, it’s clear I was leaning on the colors one way, then the other. Don’t get me wrong, I think that’s a good thing – being able to unify colors by favoring one end of the color wheel and excluding the other – I’d just like to have done it on purpose!
