"The longer you look at an object, the more abstract it becomes, and, ironically, the more real." Lucian Freud
The three biggies for a successful painting are 1) Composition  2) Color  3) Content
Today I worked controlling a mood through color choices.
The first of "Frank's Sheds" is suppose to convey a bright sunny morning with an upbeat mood using analagous colors of blue/green/yellow/orange range.
In the second one I tried to convey a quiet, hazy, thoughtful mood by using grayed colors in a split-complement color combination of blue/purple and a gray-green and a bit of accent color pink.
