A Study in Red and Blue

A Study in Red and Blue

There are many things about this piece that I think turned out quite well.  First I like the contrast between the blue and the orange.  Both are really strong but do not fight each other.  I like the "erector set" feel that the second "panel" provides.  Maybe that is why I like the Eiffel Tower so much.  The addition of the third panel with the numbers gives interest.  Anytime I see writing, whether it is the script or numbers, I find it interesting.  I gravitate to it.

Here are photos of the stages of the building the Eiffel Tower in 1887 -1889.
