King of the Hill, winter sunrise

"King of the Hill"
© Fawn McNeill 2008

This little original painting was a study on complementary colors. I  used Ultramarine Blue, and Cadmium Orange (the complement or contrast to blue), and White. The white and orange make a nice peach glow, and the light blues set it off. The dark blackish colors were made by mixing orange and blue with no white. (For gray hues, add white). Amazing to see the variety of colors created with this limited palette.  

Thought maybe I should add angels, or splatter for falling snow.  What do you think?
