I think the colors of the sky are what really make this landscape painting of migrating wild geese so beautiful. Purple, blue and orange. Funnily, I used to mess up two of the names, purple and orange when I was a kid. I called them green. Despite actually knowing purple was purple, and orange was orange, and green was, of course, green. And, for me, green and orange were the worst color names to see and say, but add to that needing to identify purple, too, and I was absolutely tongue tied every time. Henceforth, purple, orange, and green became high value colors to me and have special meaning in my paintings, as well.
