What do a peony and bucket loader have in common? Color spots of value!
In the case of these two paintings they also have pink skies.
I have been looking hard at the value of colors and a pink sky and a light blue sky can have the same value. This leaves me with choices I can make that produce strong color harmony.
Sometimes a sky is impossibly blue. It can almost look like a color in a cartoon. So finding other choices in the same value range can connect my subject to the background in a way that creates cohesion.
