color theory and temperature

all 6"x6" oils
New studies considering color theory and temperature.The top set represents a sun from behind view. Cool sky, warm midground and foreground.

This set represents a backlit scenario. Warm sky and foreground cool midground. Of course I've left out many options. They are to come. This needs to be built up gradually. Not sure how all monitors will see the color temps but will post more exact colors in the next few posts. Tomorrow I'll change horizon line and flip flop sky colors. You may or may not be amazed at how " natural colors" are not important.

Totally loving what you're up to here. You know how I loves me a good buncha abstract color field stuff. Especially when it involves simultaneous contrast.

Thanks Jala. I'm excited to pursue this direction. 15 years ago I started in this direction then plein air took over. Now I intend to merge the two and see what happens.
