The Orange Challenge

9x12 Acrylics on Gallery Wrapped Canvas

This was painted for a challenge on the Paint My Photo website. And I painted and painted - for many hours - while I learned about using orange, and about painting reflections. It might have been easier in oils and I may try a similar one one day to see the difference. But it was fun and I'm happy with the result. Thanks to Lillian Bell for her great photo reference and inspiration.

Note; the background is actually VERY dark - and on my computer in Adobe it shows as true; but for some reason once uploaded it's reading lighter.
