Three Peaches – 6" x 6" Oil on Canvas Panel SOLD

Today is my first day of normalcy… and being that it is the weekend I am free to paint! Here is a small painting of three peaches. I was trying something new out; I was pushing the colors and at the same time using a more vibrant background than I usually choose. I really like the strong shadows and shapes of this composition. What I am also gathering as I look at the painting, is that the color palette is also predominately made up of secondary colors - orange - green - voilet. I like this as well as it has a strong color balance, but also feels a little unorthodox...
