Dale,

That is a wonderful thought, but not sure if I understand or know how to do that? I understand the concept of what you are saying put just not sure -- about how to get there.

It's sitting behind some other canvas' -- I haven't had the heart to throw it away, not just yet......

I found this on countrydreaming.etsy.com. I found it had similar colours. The road picks up the purples in the sky along with the yellows and greens in the landscape.

if you try touches of the purple on the same tonal value as where you are placing it, the painting may develop a bit of cohesiveness. just an idea but for me, I have tried to use touches of the same colours throughout a painting to pullit together.

I always get inspired by watching the Youtube videos. Jimmy 3dd does a wonderful video called Oct Lane.

Thank you for the wonderful information.....I love the time and care you have given me and the encouragement.....My Joy!!!

I am just leaving work already checked out, but love to take a moment to check in on this forum before I get home, as time and busyness pulls at me when I get home....

Thank you again....I look forward to checking those ideas out. Dana

One thing I also learned in my art history class was that colors in the back ground were muted but they typically blue in the back ground, the middle ground tended to be green , and the foreground was brown. It all helped to create an illusion of space and depth. Also backgrounds tend to be kinda greyed out am fuzzy.

I have the same problem you do. If I do not plan out my painting I just tend to start using colors and not think about depth and then everything looks flat. I have always had a nasty habit of choosing a bunch of colors that I like and using them strait out of the tube. I have been forcing myself to use a very limited pallet. My lastest paintings I used Hansa Yellow Medium, Phthalo Blue (red shade), Quincridone Red, and Titanium White. I also sometimes throw in Yellow Ochre ad Burnt Umber because I never like mixing browns. It forces me to combat that whole using the paint right out of the tube.

I have also learned to not use black unless i really need it. I tend to mix my own Chrome black which is basically mixing complementary colors together. I tend to keep my chrome black towards the blue range.

To show distance aerial perspective comes into play. The atmosphere dulls and lightens colors. You can notice this if you look to the horizon outside. Otherwise, if your background is bold then it will look like a wall. Don't give up.  Smile
