Last painting class assignment for this term

I have been working hard on my final Independent painting, worth 20% of our course mark. The critique is on Tuesday. I have not shown any process photos because I prefer to keep it all to myself until the finished work of art is presented to the class. Next week I will post some pics and the process of making the piece.

In the meantime, I have been working on homework related to colour theory. The previous week was simultaneous colour contrast, where I painted a landscape image with the complimentary hues of blue and orange, mixed neutrals, then removed the blue from the palette and substituted blue-green, an analogous colour to blue. I did not take a photo of that.

This past week's assignment was contrast of extension. See http://www.utdallas.edu/~melacy/pages/2D_Design/Itten_ColorContrasts/IttenColorContrasts.html .
