"Chromatic Hours"

Douglas Rutzen's avatar Douglas Rutzen

96"x60" painting, acrylic on canvas. "Chromatic" in that blue and yellow make green. The painting is organized with two overlapping squares. The progression from overall blue to yellow is accented with complimentary highlights and shadows that modulate from orange to purple. "Hours" refers to the concept of portraying a birch stand from morning to afternoon. The shadows shift across the painting to indicate the movement of the sun over the course of a day.
