A Study In Values

A Study in Values is my latest acrylic abstract painting. Back to the basics using the color wheel and working on gradient values of blue and orange. A white line slices the canvas horizontally. On the top of the canvas a vibrant orange washes down towards the middle gradually becoming lighter in tone. From the bottom a bold ultramarine blue marches up to the middle slowly becoming more subdued before meeting the white line in the middle.

In the orange field above sits a ball with the opposite blue gradient seen below. The same scene is respectively painted below. The painting’s bold simple design catches the eye and lends itself to conversations.
