Artistic Polar Bear Challenge: 100 Ways In 100 Days. #72 - Morning Light

Well, I should say it was more of an attempt at trying to create morning light.  The thought was to use a cool Hansa Yellow, and complement it with a warm violet, with a bit of yellow-green to add more coolness to the shadows, and keep the value range high key.  The yellow-green is quite chromatic, and it got out of hand, overwhelming the weaker Hansa yellow.

Hmmmmm.  It didn't work like I pictured it, possibly because I used the cool light/warm shadow plan again. Perhaps if I reversed it?  Your thoughts?

I love it! I've really been enjoying seeing what you've painted for this challenge. I think it is especially difficult to take a single subhject and come at it from all sorts of creative angles. You are succeeding at this magnificently!
