Option A: Grab your color wheel and give it a spin. Option B: Ask yourself: How does nature do it? I struggled with the color wheel for years.

I finally found something that made sense to me on every level because of this simple reason: Nature never makes a mistake as far as color combinations are concerned. Keeping is simple is often the best way of doing things.

Someone said that it must have felt like I was like working on 22 (the number of students in my class) paintings at the same time. I found this to be an extremely accurate statement.

Would you believe me if I told you these were not abstract paintings?
