As many of you know, purple is the complement of yellow on the color wheel. I have used a shade of blue which is two steps removed from purple. According to Itten, whose book, The Elements of Color
, is the sine qua non
among colorists, choosing color harmonies where one color is matched to another that resides two steps away from its complement, are most pleasing to the eye. When you see this painting at the gallery, let me know whether you agree.
Here are the details of the show. Please visit Balboa Park and stop in to see our work. If you cannot make it to the reception, the exhibition will be on view for almost two weeks.
