Old Marietta Depot
Above is a recent commission painting of the old Marietta depot, (which now houses the welcome center of Marietta). Paintings with a variety of reds and greens seem to work pretty well, color-wise, I think. They seem to give off good color vibrations. Wasnt that an old Beach Boys song?...hmm, not sure....yup, i checked; that was it.
Usually i find less success if the painting has a dominant color theme of the other color complementary combos, like purple/yellow or blue/orange. Interesting.
