"Asian Pear" --- Sold

Now I resume my color study. This is my third attempt to establish a color scheme for purple. In this painting I use yellow to establish a complementary scheme with purple, since I have understood that high chroma for purple is very difficult to achieve. The highest chroma of the purples is only 43, but it looks pretty intense due to the contrast with the yellow. I didn't use any cadmium yellow colors. What you see here are yellow ochre and naples yellow. I deliberately keep the chroma of the yellow low, so the purple will stand out more, but I find out during my color mapping that even yellow ochre has a very high chroma (95). I feel better with this painting than the two I did before, but I need to go further.

I enjoyed looking at the many wall paintings that you have done. Not being very handy with a paintbrush, even though
I know what I like in the way of art, I took the easier option to order this canvas print from the site .

It’s an unusual work called Forest music 1, by Remedios Varo Uranga, a Spanish-Mexican woman artist.
