Orange Field, abstract landscape painting by Carol Engles


8 x 10 acrylic on paper. This is really orange - and it is bright. I think the purple is a nice contrast to the orange. If you like orange, this might be the painting for you!

Nice. Really wonderful because of the darkness on the left, and the neutral between the purple/orange.
Well done ~

Thanks DJ and Theresa! Do you think this would be a good candidate for a larger painting??

DJ said...

Carol, I'm doing larger paintings these days, so I think everything's a candidate for a larger rendition...:-)
But seriously: Yes, if you add to your value scale and assess textural implications, you can do this on a larger surface.
Go for it.
