red goult

cemetery at goult (oil on board (23cm x 23cm) David Atkinson

Here I have spun the colour wheel in my head a bit, in order to examine some colour relationships.  As we know, colour is relative in the sense that it is always dependent on it's context.  I have simply converted all the colours to their complementary opposite, so green becomes red, blue becomes orange etc.  I was wondering whether the relationships, one colour to another, still held.  This painting took me about 20 minutes and was made in situ.
