This piece is predominately painted in bold blues and energetic oranges hues. The nature of these colours is complimentary, so although the colours are bright, they work together creating an energetic and exciting piece of art. Joy creates angles and shapes by using shadows and light instead of lines. The wonderful thing about this piece is the variation in viewing experience that any observer can have; up close it is a wonder of shapes and colour but as the viewer pulls back distinct images begin to take shape and forms start to appear.
