Contrasts, Complements & Focal areas- Woods in Winter

Woods in Winter-Postcard
Postcard on Matte
8.5 by 5.5 (21.7 by 14 cm)
Reproduction of my painting,
Woods in Winter











This work is a reproduction I made of my painting, Woods in Winter.

In Woods in Winter, I wanted to convey the beauty of winter & snow but also isolation if we cannot go outside. I used the color blue, the coldest color on the color wheel & heightened its color by using its dulled complement, orange, in this case orange brown. The reflection of the sky is seen on the snow. The warm light strikes the tree & shines on the snow. The greatest contrast is the dark person & the light on the tree. This was my focal area. The partial tree in the foreground & the snow on its branches are soft & blurred. It was not my area of emphasis but it draws the viewer into the painting & provides a sense of depth.
