Day 12 - Orange

Orange, Acrylic on Gessoboard, 6"x6", $50
Day 12 of the 30 day Challenge

For this painting, I started with an orange painting from a couple of years ago that I wasn't all that happy with. I eliminated one of the two oranges, and then abstracted what was left. The palette went from all hot (red, orange, browns, with the oranges being the cool note with hints of green) to mostly cool. I allowed a lot of the second orange to be lost in the background - just because. The process of destruction and reconstruction was interesting and fun. Interesting because I had to override what was already there to create something new. Fun because it's a lot better now.
