Swirly Universe by Amaterasu1960 Swirly Universe by Amaterasu1960
I've made this for a Traditional Media challenge.
The request was to use only two opposite colours and I chose blue (French Ultramarine) and orange (Cadmium Red& Yellow Medium).

It was surprising difficult to make a painting with only two colours, but seeing the endresult, it's possible to make a pretty nice painting out if it :D I'm kind of pleased with how it turned out.


I received a honourable mention! THANK YOU :heart:

This is so beautiful. The impression of movement and flowing energy is quite impressive.

There's so much energy to this piece. Most space paintings fall flat to me - cause, y'know, it's pretty hard to compete with actual space photographs - but this one adds something very dynamic.

Lovely artwork! Great exercise. Choosing two colors and creating from that supposed limitation to access an unlimited world of creation! :clap:
