Oriental Red Yellow Blue
Purchase "Oriental Red Yellow Blue"
6" x 8"
oil on hardboard
I painted this for the Paint it Primary challenge on DPW. I'm fairly happy with the painting, but I don't know if the color scheme is an asset. It's OK.
My personal challenge in this painting was NOT going detailed with the buildings and boats in the background. I've tried to paint marina scenes many times, with only limited success, because I have that tendency to paint every mast, every porthole, and it ends up stiff and awkward. So in that area I feel like I made progress in this painting.
"Oriental" is the name of a town in North Carolina on the Neuse River, known as the "sailing capital of NC."
