This week's art class homework

My choice of a surface, a thick gnarly piece of Douglas Fir bark. It looks very grey here, but it was browner under the incandescent lamp.

I used complimentary colours of yellow and violet, and lots of mixed neutrals, and a tint of the greyish neutral for the highlights.
