This morning’s throw of the die was a welcome relief from the Modified Triad of the last two days.
I threw a three (Double Complements) a one (yellow) and a two (yellow/green). The third throw was to determine the second set of complements. That gave me yellow, purple, yellow / green and red/purple.
I enjoyed playing with the push and pull of the warm and cool colors as well as slightly altering the value of each. I turned my back on the actual trumpet parts so as not to be influenced by the real lighting situation. I wanted to manipulate shapes and colors with only design in mind.
