Red to Green
About this artwork
Artist Dwight Smith paints a realistic still life of a collection of red and green items. Apples, chillis, beans, buttons, and a spool of thread lay on a white surface. How can I get the observer to look right to left viewing this watercolor? asks Dwight. He arranges the objects with purpose, using different hues and changing values to entice the viewer to start at the right frame of reference.
