"Orange Elevated"

 Daily Painting #147/ "Orange Elevated"/Original oil painting on panel 8"X6"
   Continuing with the orange quest (a vitamin C need?)-this setup explores complementary colors, reflections, and contrasting cast shadows vs. form shadows. I like leaving a bit of the under painting to hold things together. 
When setting up still life objects to paint, I often get inspiration from the pile of objects that have been cast off to the side. Somehow they are less contrived than the setups I attempt to orchestrate.  Funny how that works!

 Enjoy, Eileen
