Joel Sturm, Complimentary, Acrylic on Paper, 9 x 14″
My parents had this Kandinsky painting up when I was young, and I always remembered it. I thought it would be a good picture to do complimentary colors with. I started with a photo negative version of it and did some color adjusting to make sure that the colors didn’t look too far off. A lot of the colors were a bit harsh, so I adjusted it accordingly. It was a fun project to paint, and I’m starting to feel a lot more comfortable mixing colors as well as being able to recreate a color I had previously made. It’s cool to see this piece in a familiar but novel way.
