Most of the time in any landscape, we face a lot of greens, and, in this case, yellows and yellow-greens also. Adding a touch of violet or red-violet is the compliment of yellow and yellow-greens and does wonders for a landscape of mostly greens!
I added the purple wildflowers to add the complimentary color to all the yellows and yellow-greens. I tried to add them in a pattern that would lead back to the log, then to the aspens. After that, I wet the paper and added them wet-into-wet so that they would be soft and not lead the viewer anywhere. I hope it worked – the log to the aspens, down to the yellow and back to the log in a kind of circular, or C composition. Any feedback on this – feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I have very tough skin, so you won’t make me feel bad, I promise!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this post! Sorry it’s been so long – I’ve had a lot going on, and will try to do better on a weekly post.
