The Ledge

When using blue and orange, the painting pretty much paints itself. Those two complementary colours are an artist's best friend. This picture was inspired by a view of the Alberta Legislature as I was driving past: the sun was obscured by a cloud but it created a gold halo. I almost wrecked the painting with a sloppy application of yellow, but the sandpaper saved the day!
