Shades of Orange
Most of us think of orange as the color of the fruit but there are many shades of orange. Add some blue or some black and you get various degrees of beige, tan, browns. I like rich warm earth color browns to add spice to a painting. A very wise woman once told me that when in doubt as to how to unify or finish a painting add the “color of an old violin”, rich, burnished, warm and inviting. I did that in one of my all time favorite paintings titled Earth View, a 34” X 34” acrylic on canvas.
