More complementaries (branches)

It’s really difficult to capture colours accurately in photographs. I need to practice that.

A few days ago, painted some “branches” using complementary colours to model the three dimensionality. Today I painted in some backgrounds, wet-on-dry. That made the edges of the branches look kind of “eaten away”, which I like.

160723a Yellow/Purple Branches and 160723c Dark Green/Red Branches remind me of early Dana Schutz paintings.

And the smooth modelling using saturated colours reminds me of Gary Baseman (if anyone has title and details for this picture, let me know).
