More Watercolors

More from the Awakening series. VII, VIII, & IX

These three paintings were exercises in analogous color palettes with a complementary color laid in as an opposing color mass or highlight.

Awakenings VII – 2-1/2” x 2-1/2 – watercolor
Yellow-Green-Blue were the analogous colors and the deep red is a direct compliment of green

Awakenings VIII – 2-1/2” x 2-1/2 – watercolor
Red-Orange-Yellow were the analogous colors here, with a very large field of blue as the complimentary color to orange.

Awakenings IX – 2-1/2” x 2-1/2 – watercolor

Red-Voilet (Purple)-Blue were the analogous colors with yellow being the compliment to purple.

lovely abstracts. sometimes i find working in smaller sizes are easier & fun to do in watercolors.

Kuma, the smaller size is really about letting go and having fun. I am having so much fun with these that once this series is over, a new series will be coming soon.
