In landscapes, paints, flowers….

my eye is always drawn to the blue/orange complement combination.

The land around Perth, up north near Kalbarri has beautiful and rich terracotta tones.

Perfect, inspirations.

Land and Sea Complements

 

The boulders and escarpments…..

Fiery orange.

That ignites the earth when the last light of the sun touches the boulders.

 

In the above boulder image,   looking past  all that dominating rich earthy orange color… we can see the nuances of its complement, blue.

Whispering in ribbons throughout the rock.

What an inspiration!

 

 

The sea ranges from cobalt teal blue, to phalo blue and indigo.

Depending upon the mood of the sea that day.
