Well, I worked last night and finished my “Quiller” exercise. I was asked to paint 6 small paintings using Winsor Violet, Manganese Blue and Cadmium Orange. I was asked to make one color dominant, one intermediate and one subordinate and to vary values and intensity. I was reasonably happy with the results with one exception. The violet and orange are SO aggressive that I had a fairly hard time making the blue dominant. I am not sure I succeeded at all in this respect. Any ideas?
Just a note: the house in the third painting reminds me of “Green Gables” on Prince Edward Island. I had exactly the same feeling this painting gives when I was there. This was strictly an accident!
