Back wallPosted: April 7, 2014
It’s near impossible to find something industrial in my suburban neighbourhood so I drove to a nearby commercial area. I realized pretty quickly that even though there’s plenty to draw, there’s no place to park with a good view of the kind of stuff that interests me. I circled back home and the best I could find was this little setup in the back of a big box store. Since the foreground object (pipes) and background (wall) were mere inches apart, I used colour temperature to separate them. The background is a mix of warm cerulean blue and cadmium orange. The pipes have lots of cools: cobalt blue, with a bit of burnt sienna and carmine.
