Mark Harrison's Brighton Pavilion
I chose Mark Harrison's Brighton Pavilion because the complementary blue and orange colors caught my eye as I was flipping though the pages. Harrison used acrylics to create his painting and also used a monochromatic blue color scheme for most of the composition; he uses different shades and tints of blue to create depth and value. His color choice was the main thing I had noticed in this design, as the contrasting colors seem to create a 'warm' feeling. I also like how this painting portrays space as you are able to notice that the building is farther into the middle ground, and there is a foreground consisting of plants and leaves.
