Mixing Exercise 25

Exercise 25 - The complementary pair, orange and blue, with mixed yellow-orange and green-blue. Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium Scarlet, and Cerulean Blue.

This series of complementary exercises has juggled a couple of blues against a range of oranges. From browns, grays, and subdued to brighter greens, the center point of these mixes has presented quite the range.

Next up is a week of red and green. I am reminded of my much younger days when I practiced scales and Hanon on my piano. Those exercises were not always terribly exciting, but at times quite rewarding, at others meditative, and they did quietly and surely instill a deep body/mind sense of space and motion. I'm hoping for similar results here.
