Robert Burridge - Still Life with Oranges
My studio assignment this past week was to work on a series of small works - each featuring a different specific composition and color combination from my color wheel.
My goals for this painting included the following: Diagonal composition (diagonal line of oranges), Red as the the dominant color with Compose Blue as the focal point and 2 "spice colors" around the focal point (Cadmium Green Light and Katsura Blue). I also wanted to create a painterly still life that would retain the original abstractness. I was pleased with the outcome.
Original 10x10 acrylic on paper painting - inquire as to availability.
