In my prior post, I used my painting to discuss the value (black and white gray scale) of the bottom shape. I said that the hues (colors) of the dark reflection under the bridge, the reflections of the underside of the bridge, bridge and the water were similar in value. I continued to paint keeping these values similar. I liked the large curved shape I had with these similar values. The large shape shows a dynamic movement rising from the bottom of the painting. In prior posts I have talked about the triadic color wheel. This wheel has 3 primary hues (yellow, red, blue) and 3 secondary hues (orange, green, purple). These secondary hues are made from the primary colors. There are other types of color wheels. The Munsell color wheel is popular among artists as complementary colors are more exact. Munsell added 2 primary hues, green and purple. This creates 5 primary hues and 5 secondary hues. In my above painting, I used the Munsell complementary pair, red purple and green. In the triadic color wheel, the complementary pair is red and green.
