Petite Oranges

With this week's Daily Paintworks challenge in mind, I tried painting with a complementary/split complementary color scheme of orange, red-orange, yellow-orange and blue.  This painting seemed to get muddy very quickly, so I am not going to submit it.  I will try again tomorrow, though.  It is interesting to work with such a limited palette, and it is a great exercise in seeing values, too.

Also, I worked from a Wet Canvas photograph today.  It is a wonderful reference tool for artists.   

Happy Sunday, y'all!  I hope you have a great evening!
