Color is a funny thing. I’m always shocked by its emotion. How much is applied symbolism, how intrinsic is its power? Just like music, our sense perception is related to vibration and velocity. Why does our nervous system react to wavelengths in such distinct ways?
In art, I’ve always struggled a bit with yellow. These canola fields have sat on my computer for almost a year, feared and avoided. Over the weekend I took a breath, dove in, and failed miserably. These colors wouldn’t fit with any color theory I was aware of. Complimentary, Analogous, triad? Nope. It sent me on a long road of discovery to figure out what the hell was going on.
My first stop was google, ‘yellow color themes’ nope nope nope. Next I spent some time with the artists Richard Diebenkorn and Wayne Thiebaud. Hmmm... things coming together. Soon thereafter I realized @___benthomas (a fellow Hasselblad Master) was doing amazing work with these these harmonies. Getting closer... (thanks Ben!) It was only with the final addition of Adobe’s color wheel website, that I discovered some confidence in this direction. What you see here is a mutation of the Analogous color option on that website, or a Pentagonal or Double Split Complimentary Harmony 🤓. A bit different for me, but fun. At least I’m less scared of yellow now. Wait, wasn’t yellow an old derogatory term for being scared? Yep, color is funny.

Beautiful work! When I think of the color yellow, I think of William Eggleston’s photography. He knew how to add it just right 💛
woooow , your work is breathtaking 🌹
So beautiful 🙌
