The Swimmer

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.
