Orange Peel and Stein
7" x 5" Oil on Panel
Today's daily painting is a still life of an orange peel and a black ceramic stein. This stein is one of my favorite mugs. It has quite a nice shape and is incomparably smooth. This still life setup was inspired by David Leffel's Oil Painting Secrets from a Master. I avoided the horizontal by slightly sloping the viewing angle of the board. The arrangement reads from left to right. The color scheme is the concept with the orange complemented by the background.
The photo is not quite accurate. I am having trouble with showing the orange color as warm as in real life. I will work on updating it with better light.
