6 x 6 inches, Oil on Board
I decided to paint these peaches as my response to this week's Daily Paintworks Challenge, which is The Complementary Challenge prepared by Layne Cook. No, the peaches are not complementing each other, even though they are hanging out kind of close to each other.
What was planned for this painting, was the use of the complementary colors of green with red. Well, more specifically a blue-green neutral paired with the warmer dominant orange-red of the peaches. The cast shadows have all colors mixed on the palette included in them.
I really enjoyed painting this piece. I love stepping up to the DPW's weekly challenges and hope they never stop. They are a great source of learning.
