So here are the results of my journey down the path of color theory. I LOVE color: saturated, pulsating, vibrating color that pulls you into the art! Complimentary colors!
As you can tell my main complimentary study was the relationship between Blue and Orange. Now I will let you know I mixed my own orange- no just squeezing it out of a preprocessed orange acrylic tube here. Also I used fluid acrylics whenever possible to create that watercolor transparency of layers to build up depth. But for an extra punch I did mix in some heavy body acrylics to pick up some texture. I used some of my handmade paper as my base. If you look at the edges of the paper you can see the delicate fibers. I love the texture of the light weight paper. I definitely plan to make more of this type of paper in the future. It was done using the Japanese method for paper making.
Here are some websites I discovered when I went exploring online for a lesson on Color Theory.
