Painting with Complementary Colours


This is the seventh of the art challenges.

If you would like to follow the challenges in order (you don't have to), then click HERE to go to the first challenge.

Follow this challenge tutorial HERE to learn how complementary colours can give your paintings extra zing and vibrancy.

Your challenge is to create an artwork using complementary colours. You can use either direct complementary colours, split complementary colours or harmonious complementary colours in your artwork.

Then return here to post your challenge entry.

All challenges are subject to the CHALLENGE RULES.

Good luck and have fun

My submission, a Majorelle garden scene:

The garden was owned by Yves Saint-Laurent and Pierre Bergé between 1980 and 2008. After Yves Saint Laurent died in 2008 his ashes were scattered in the Majorelle Garden.

I am very fond of this blue. Painted in tetradic complementary colours.
