I like the color orange but avoid painting it sometimes because I have a hard time making shadows for it that don't look like mud. Orange and purple is one of my favorite color combinations so I decided to try a purple shadow. I think it's a little darker than it should be and this photo makes it look a little blue but I'm going to try purple shadows again in the future.

I was also trying (as always) to keep my brush strokes looser. It is so hard for me not to tighten up. I've been looking these artists with great stroke economy: Doug Braithwaite, Robert Frank, Kris Shanks & Karin Jurick.

Available: $75 + $10 shipping. Or send me an e-mail.
