The road was blue to me. That’s how I started. What other colour could the trees possibly be but red? When you invert your normal colour choices a whole new world of possibilities emerge. With a bit of practice you will learn how to balance an alternative colour spectrum which will give rise to an exciting new visual language.
When I first posted this painting someone commented that they never noticed the red trees and the blue road because somehow the colours all made sense. Have you tried switching the colours in your landscape?
