As I look at a recent paintings, a few reoccurring color combos or subject matter start to make patterns. I really love using complementary colors to heighten the contrast and accent my birdies. I have found that the basic primary colors are all great together as well. "Happy In Hawaii" features primary colors in their intense, saturated hues. The 'Apapane is perfect for this composition with its bright red feathers and smiley disposition. Just another clear sky day in beautiful Hawaii:)
