5x7 oil on canvas panel.....$120
Blue and orange are opposites on the standard color wheel... but on the artist's color wheel..the Munsell version...the opposite of blue is yellow and the opposite of red-orange is turquoise. Nothing says the high desert like the use of these colors. I also painted a slightly larger version of this piece ..an 8x10 titled 'Union of Opposites' which you can view by clicking the 'AVAILABLE PAINTINGS' link on this page. If you like art history [my minor in college]...check out the succinct work of the late great Maynard Dixon...a master of color oppositions you can see emulated by many famous landscape painters today.
