Orange and Green

Orange and Green, Acrylic on Gessoboard, 6"x6", $195

Day 24 of the 30 in 30 Challenge.  Another day, another orange. Actually, I was playing with lighting here.  I asked myself, "what if I tried strong sidelight?"  To do that I decided to make a lead in band of rich yellow-green on the left and made the cloth under the orange lighter, too.  The dark areas on the right are a mix of red and blue to make them dark with a bit of yellow to make it greenish (this photo doesn't show it very well.)  Then I gave the orange a light green base under the orange - not much of it shows through but I think it still makes a difference.
