Monochrome and complementary
I’ve done monochrome color images for a while, so I thought I’d put together a collection of them. This collection has pairs of color monochromes in complementary colors: orange/blue, red/green, and yellow/purple. Click a thumbnail to see a larger image.
The combinations work nicely on the wall as well – I’ve tried this in galleries and at home.
This group is half new, half previously posted. They are nearly monochrome – other colors do intrude (orange in the sumac, cyan in the spiderwort, and so on).
Interesting to see, kind of sends your mind into new territory.
That’s the the way it is for me. I tend to think of each image individually. Then, in an exhibit earlier this year I started to think about contrasting colors in hanging pictures next to each other.
Gorgeous collection, Tom! Would look wonderful hung together in a grouping! Thank you for the smile this morning.
Thanks, Tracy. It was fun to put this together…
Excellent. Love those colors.
In the sumac leaf picture, some of the protrusions suggest faces looking leftward.
Never noticed that – thanks for stopping in and commenting, Steve.
wonderful and so artistic 🙂
Thanks Joshi – now I’m experimenting with printing a grouping like this one. I’ll need images that are all the same orientation, or square crops though…
It’s amazing how beautiful these images are ! So much details go unnoticed in our everyday life. The spiderwort filaments is superb !
The spiderwort looks like jellyfish tentacles!
