Glowing Colour - Evening Sail

Evening Sail
Acrylic on w/c paper & mount board
7 by 9 inches (17.85 by 22.95 cm)
8 by 10 inch (20.4 by 25.5cm) board

Not For Sale.














Evening Sail was inspired by the evening light flowing over the landscape and this light’s reflections on the water. The luminous glow of the painting was achieved by using two main colours, orange and blue. Orange and blue are complementary colours (colours directly opposite each other on the colour wheel). Both colours were dulled (reduced in intensity, muted). These dulled colours make each other brighter. When these complementary colours are beside each other, the differences between the colours are heightened. The painted layers, primarily of the dulled orange colour painted before and under the blue water, results in a glow that is seen over the entire painting.
