Today's muse was this orange.  Tomorrow morning, it will be juice.  I created two palettes of orange: one using cadmium red (for the illuminated side); one using alizarin crimson (for the shaded side).

  1. Looks like you are having a great time with the simplified paintings....the mug is great, the orange picture is blurry for me, but it looks very colorful and textural. Nice!
