This is an abstract painting of two whales by Riccardo Guasco. This artist tends towards a limited color palette using an analogous color scheme of yellow, orange, and red, and also using black, white, and gray that creates strong contrasts throughout the composition. This composition also provides some asymmetry between the two whales that creates more interest between the two. I like this painting because it seems simple at first with the use of flat color planes, but is very successful at leading your eye around the composition.
