Orange Compliment [oil, 8”x6”]

Orange ComplimentThis is the third painting from the weekend workshop.  I was amazed at how much duller the reflection was relative to the brilliance of the orange!  Given that blue is the compliment to orange [ie mixed together they would be dull greyish] I shouldn’t have been so surprised.  I love painting glass and this was a good challenge for the last painting of the workshop.  One more weekend of focusing on, and painting, what I see – not orange sections and a blue bottle!  So fun!
