Sometimes I like to create two pieces that work as companions but aren't a diptych or necessarily meant to be together. It's a great way to work on slightly different compositions and colour palettes while experimenting with pattern and of pushing myself in a bit of a new direction. In this case, I used a different palette of blues, reds and yellows (the primaries) while still utilizing those same three basic colours - in the first I used ultramarine blue, cadmium red medium and cadmium yellow medium (my traditional palette) and in the second I used pthalo blue, napthol red and hansa yellow. I like to see how the different palette affects the look and feel of the work. I'd like to know...which do you prefer?
