Warm and Cool Color Contrasts - Cactus in the Desert

Cactus in the Desert
Acrylic on watercolor paper
7 by 7 inches, 17.85 by 17.85 cm
















I wanted to emphasize the heat of the desert. I did this by using a warm color, orange on the ground. The orange color bounces back into the shadows of the cactus. The contrast with the cool blue of the sky and the cool green in the background makes the warm color more evident. I also used a warm yellow light to make the heat stand out.
