May Monthly Challenge Color Palette

This month's challenge painting is "Untitled" by Augustin Lesage.

"Lesage’s patterns are unmistakable.  After noting the symmetry of the first large canvas, he began organizing his compositions along a central axis, building complex geometric structures in horizontal layers from the center outward."



This painting is so unique as is the artist who painted it. With a backdrop of beiges and tan the bright color pop off the canvas. You can do so much with this unique painting, using the repetition of dots, geometric elements and the intense colors.
I pulled out the bright colors, the neutral colors ground the painting.

Lots to pull from here I have to bring my brain down a couple of notches to focus on one idea!
