When I was painting this one, or setting up the still life, I thought it was interesting that such a small amount of red-orange could balance out a large portion of blue. Imagine if the colors were reversed.. I'm not sure that the blue would stand a chance. It is quite fun playing around with these colors and transparent objects. I do my best to accept the challenges head on and not be afraid to put a glass bottle or some transparent object in there. It seems it is these objects that bring out the life in the painting, at least for me. $100 Purchase on Etsy - Click Here

Here is the color palette that I used for this painting:
