Pink, Scarlet and Grey – A Trio

Three very different subjects,  but united by a strategic color use…..

Painting and creating with the camera, acrylics and pastel pencils with all three images was extremely enjoyable. Each had its own little quirks and directions it wanted to go.

It was great to learn some new applications and techniques the last couple days.

 

Then too, I was able to put several artworks/paintings on   debijriley  Redbubble.com shop as well……. This really was a fun busy,  weekend!

COLOR  USE

 

I  harmonized these subjects, through a dominance of neutral greys and pinks in the first 2 of these images.

This set the stage, for (image #3)   Scarlet sky to flame.

She has pinks to soften her up, black as a neutral as well.    The pink/green vibration creates a ‘visual grey to the eye’.

Overall,  its a strong look but there is a hint, a suggestion – of balance. Of rest.   Thats what I wanted.

Pink, Scarlet and Grey  are  so beautiful  together. These colors can harmonize even in really diverse subjects, creating a lovely oneness.  A collection.
