Trumpet Parts No. 67 – Cross Complementary Color Scheme (Purple and Yellow, Red/Orange and Blue/Green)

Trumpet Parts No. 67, Ink and Watercolor

A little too heavy-handed with the red/orange.  The cross complementary color scheme is not my favorite, but it presents the opportunity for colors to really dance together in a push and pull manner.  I’ve said before that I should stop doing these studies on thin paper.  Maybe, just maybe, I listen to myself this time and save this lousy sketchbook for only ink and pencil sketches.

Sketchbook painting: drawn first, loosely, with fountain pen filled with Sailor Jentle Epinard (dark green) ink, followed by watercolor.
