Rocks as Objects

Rock Objects I
24" x 24"  acrylic on canvas  
This is for sale - contact me for price if interested.

Like others in this series, Rock Objects I was inspired by a detail from a photo of rocks on the shoreline. The challenge was to simplify the rock shapes but still create solid three dimensional objects. Then I re-arranged the rocks to improve the composition and allow the background or negative space to work it's magic. As for the palette, the colour blue reminds us of sky and water, and the best colour to go with that  one is of course it's complement, orange. Together they sing, don't you think.
