Oranges in a Bowl still life pastel painting SOLD

6″ by 6″  pastel painting, unframed


This painting almost didn’t make it to my blog. The background colors were light and dark grey causing the colors of the fruit and bowl to look muted. Sometimes I don’t notice the problem immediately.  I took a break and when I came back the “light went on”. Of course blue would make the colors pop more. It worked!
To artists: Don’t give up on that painting you think might have failed. Take a break and look at it with a new eye.
