Sketchbook Challenge - Opposites

Opposites 1
I started out working with foregrounds and backgrounds, with opposing views on each page. Then I searched the internet for quotes that spoke to me.

Opposites 2
After thinking about Marc Chagall's quote "All colors are the friends of their neighbors and the lovers of their opposites". I decided to add the "opposite" color to blue, which is orange. I think a much richer version than Opposites 1.

I think both sets are great (the complementary colored ones really pop). I have really enjoyed looking around your blog and seeing all of your beautiful art journal pages... wonderful.

I had an art history teacher who said, "If it moves you, it's art!" Well, your opposites move me—particularly the blue and orange, which is my all-time favorite color combination. I am now wistful, just wishing I had a shred of your artistic talent. Thank you for sharing.
