Have you ever noticed how everything turns that reddish tone right as the sun has dropped below the horizon? I decided to explore just that this time in the painting below. When I first set it in, everything was so monotone...RED.
I wasn't happy with yesterday's results so I set to work on it this morning. I think it looks a lot better in this finished form. I love the use of contrast on a painting and usually I use extreme color contrast to achieve what I want. But for this painting, I wanted the contrast to be more subtle, so I incorporated a little yellow and some clean pink. I like the final results, but would love to hear what you think.
