PUSHING THE COLOR

MORNING WALK   10x8    oil on canvas panel
The composition is what first caught me on this one.  I was struck by the way the bridge, which was all in shadow, offered a unified shape arrangement.  I decided to push the color to the extremes of hot and cool contrast, something I enjoy doing.

Some times people will tell me that there's no way those colors are right.  "Uh huh, and your point?"  Believe me, I'm aware that not everyone cares for this type of color, but I figure it's my painting - I can do whatever I like.  What I see is up to me, if it's not for you, that's cool, too.
