Azul y Naranja - sold

I just love complementary colors. This painting was actually a demo for my Thursday class at the Columbia Center for the Arts. An exploration of shadow colors and shapes.

Made in Italy - sold

The orange cup is so cool, almost too cool to paint. It's made in Italy, my painting buddy, pastel artist Karen Watson, loaned it to me for some still life inspiration.

Nuances of Light - sold

I was quite inspired when I saw Carol Marine's little white angel painting arrive in my inbox, having just painted a white ceramic object (white ceramic coffee cup) next to a slice of orange that same day.
So I decided for today's painting, to paint the coffee cup and orange slice again, this time with a much lighter value scale, to see what would happen. It's always surprising, the results with the challenges you give yourself. I ended up using mostly purple, yellow, orange and burnt umber, to modify the white (ok, some ultramarine blue too). Those colors are complements in an analogous sort of way, on the color wheel.
