Complementary Colors

I decided to try another painting using the complements of violet and yellow.  As you can see in the sky and the rocks, combining complementary colors wet-in-wet produces a beautiful neutral gray.  That leaves the lightest area around the focal point with the purest colors.  Contrast of complementary colors and neutrals and pure colors adds interest and punch to a landscape.
