Analogous colors

Painters know that analogous colors (colors adjacent to one another on the color wheel) will produce a "harmonious" painting...it's a "sure thing"!

Painting: Celeste Bergin, The Golden Hour, oil on 10 x 8 canvas panel

I love this celeste I like it because it makes me feel like I am out in the wild places and you have painted a beautiful abstract.

The harmony aside, which is wonderful, what I love is the warmth. You have sneaked away from Portland and gone to SoCal!

Love the feeling of light! Beautiful brushwork, too. It's always fun to play around with the color wheel. :)
