Complementary Colors

The state park on St. George Island has some fairly high dunes with some very interesting scrub pines.
The sand is nearly white, but painting it that way would be monotonous.  I decided to use a pink tint as a base color.  Then it only made sense to use a cool green as the sky color, thus setting up the complementary colors.  The cool green in the sky would then recede when I put down the warmer greens of the tree canopy. 

What a nice way to spend a February day.....At the beach!
