Artistic Polar Bear Challenge: 100 Ways In 100 Days. #56 - Warm Analogous

We'll leave the simplicity of a monochromatic scheme behind us, and venture into the land of analogous hues, where friendly, amicable neighbors on the wheel create the basis for congenial color harmony.

Our color menu for today consists of a tart Cadmium Yellow Medium, a tasty Cadmium Orange, and a spicy Cadmium Red Light, complimented by just a taste of Ultramarine Blue for a reduction in chroma and value.

A part of me thought that moving from a monochromatic recipe to the slightly more complex analogous mix might stir the pot a bit too much, but this bear baked up pretty quick and easy.

Funny you described the colors in a "tasteful" way because when I saw this one I thought he looked like candy - sweet and yummy!! Not a gummy bear, but something even better :) And you know I liked the cool polar dude, too!
