The Valley, Moonlight by Emil Carlsen

Oil on Canvas, 24 x 32 inches

I love the colors in this painting by still life and landscape artist Emil Carlsen. I've been experimenting a lot with color since I finally checked out the website Colourlovers. The site allows you to view and create palettes and share them on the site. I've been having fun examining pieces of artwork and choosing up to 5 colors that represent them. Here's the palette I created for the above painting:

I'm hoping the more I analyze the color relationships in different works of art, I'll have a better understanding of why certain pieces evoke moods.
