5" x 7" oil on canvas board
This is my latest entry for the DPW Challenge. I chose to use a split complimentary and complimentary color scheme. We had several to choose from and I chose turquoise, orange, red and red-orange. I have messed up all the settings on my camera trying to get a clearer image and true colors and have not been successful. I am about ready to pitch this camera. That being said, this is one of the swimmers in a swim team painting I did a couple of years ago. I pulled this one out and painted it according to the DPW rules. The actual painting has a much more vivid color of turquoise in the background which enhances the orangey flesh tones.
