Primary colors painting

Surrealist landscape in primary colors

This is the most popular image on my site, according to Google Search. It uses primary colors: red, yellow, blue (as well as black and white). Primary colors are a set of colors from which all other colors may be derived. In art, red, yellow and blue paint can be mixed to produce all hues. In light, red, green and blue wavelengths combine to form all hues. In inkjet printers, it’s magenta, yellow, and cyan.

I made this painting with oils as an exercise for class. The painting is about 2×2 feet on stretched canvas. See more surreal landscapes.
