This is my new painting, The Colorful Land. The dominant color temperature is cool. The dominant value is mid tones. The light is coming from the right. The modeling of the trees is similar to cylindrical modeling. The repetition in my painting, i.e. the trees, maintains unity. The trees also provide rhythm and eye movement. I usually connect the light or dark values for unity. Because of the spaces among the leaves (lace), the light tones join and unite the painting. The artist, Degas connected his above painting with dark values. The leaves of the trees are painted with several colors. Examine the orange and green leaves. Orange and green are different hues and have different color temperatures. View the gray scale image. The orange and green are the same value and therefore, create a single shape. It is best to have different color temperatures in one shape. One temperature should be dominant.
