This is a work in complementary colors, probably my favorite way to use color. What is great about a limited palette of opposite colors is the type of gray that you can mix. The clouds and the saddle are just mixes of red and green and white, that make wonderful grays and also a neutral violet. When I noticed that violet in the shadows on the horse one more color was needed to finish the work; yellow. Adding the yellow gave a nice pop to the colors and also made a new set of complements in the painting, yellow and violet.
