"Turquoise Stripe" --- Sold

Click Here to Bid

You know I use a lot red and oranges in my paintings. This one is the same. The reason is obvious. Hot color capture viewer's attention easily. However, if I over use it, it starts to get boring. So I have been searching other colors that gives strong impact to people. This painting is one my tests. The color I am testing is turquoise. It is actually the opposite of the orange and red, but its crisp coolness can work as an eye catcher. I will definitely use it more.

hi , Why don't you use pomagrenate instead of oranges it'll change the foreground and the color will stay hot color and capture the viewer.
