Complementary Coffee

My drawing and painting needed a jump start! So I copied one of the animals on my coffee pot! I love the easy, flowing shapes and the complementary colours. Blue and orange are opposites on the colour wheel and play with our eyes giving a simultaneous contrast. This is not the ‘push and pull’ of colours like the last post, but balancing contrast, giving a sense of harmony.

What a lot of fun, drawing the things around me at home. Now I see patterns everywhere! Inspired!
