Violet Marsh Ten

17x23 mixed media on paper. This is a larger version of a 5x7 that I did in a series. I LOVE this color combination. Violet and black violet are very powerful, rich colors and gold and ochre are rich enough in their own right to balance them. I added some chartreuse and red for contrast and kept the sky a very light blue. Hope you like it!
