Opposite Colors Attract Interest

The beginning of
"Passage Into Palisades"
Once the outline is complete the next step is deciding what colors to use. I like to chose colors opposite on the color wheel that reflect or enhance highlights. For instance, the hair I used a soft orange which creates depth when layering dark colors over the orange. With most my paintings I try several color variations until I am satisfied with the end result.
