Derain’s colour

Still experimenting with complementaries, now in a less structured way than with the colour wheels. I was never attracted to Fauvism before, but doing these exercises has made me look again. I like how doing painting is changing the way I look at painting.

Today I’m especially digging André Derain’s paintings of London. One-hundred-and-ten years old and still looks fresh as f@#k.
