It's Your Day

This was an experiment in color.  I had read that if you lay down color in rainbow order, you'll never have to deal with muddy results from having two non-compatible colors adjacent to each other.  This is very basic, beginner information and as an Art Minor in school, I marvel that I somehow never picked this up.  But better late than never . . . so I began with dark blue upper left and continued right with green, yellow, and on down with orange and red . . .

It was where the green encountered the red just above the butterfly that I could see trouble looming ahead, so I backed off before things got irreversible.  It was a good lesson!  Memorizing the color-coded acronym ROY G BIV (my new BFF!) has made my coloring choices so much easier to plan.  It stands for Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet:  lovely colors, and very neighborly when used in that order . . .
