Green Egg

This is my submission to the color challenge from The Daily Paintworks. I thought it would be easy. Hah.1st attempt was a wipe off, hadn't even got the drawing right! 2 days later, back in the studio, and it started to come together for me. It's a split complementary color scheme, which is, by definition, takes one color from the color wheel (my color was purple) and then uses one color on either side of its' complement. (which would be yellow) with orange on one side and green on the other side. I used the basic color wheel, but  it still sounds more complicated than it actually was! I have the blue and purple eggs to paint next! Ha Ha.


  1. This is sure the right time of year to paint eggs. Well done and Happy Easter.

  2. I agree that was a tough assignment! You did a great job!
