First Week in Orange




First Week in Orange

Painted with the Independent Painters Group this morning.
“RO” showed up to pose in the orange dress. I scrambled to find some blue fabric to place over the chair. Without it, even in bright orange, she seemed to disappear.
18”x 24” watercolor on cold press

  1. Nice combination..good thing you found the blue cloth; but the orange in her dress stands out anyway.

    1. I would have put some blue against the orange even if I hadn't found the fabric.
      Thank you

  4. Oh yes...the blue background is indeed the perfect frame for her stunning orange dress.
    This is such a striking portrait, Anthony...the colours are truly amazing...she does appear slightly bored though...either that, or is lost in thought. I wonder what she is thinking...

    Have a Great Weekend :)

    1. Yes the blue helped.
      Thank you. She holds the look, bored or not, very well☺
      She was thinking about how busy the rest of her day will be. Posing on the occasional Friday for us, I think is a break from the typical busy Friday.
      Hope you have a good weekend too.
