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.
I am a painter living in Vermont. I've been painting for about 20 years learning as I go along. In the last couple of years I've been learning a bunch of new painting techniques and experimenting with new subject matter.
