Bold Color

I've posted several recent paintings that feature the saved white shapes of barns.  Here's one where I tried to emphasize the bold color in the sky area by placing a dark silhouette against it.  Also, to avoid monotony in the fishing gear on the dock, I used a few well-placed reds. 

Bold color doesn't have to appear everywhere in a painting.  It can be emphasized by using contrasting darks with little vibrant color.
