Tango Twist - original oil figure painting

I was searching through an old box of oil paints the other day and discovered my long lost tube of cadmium orange. I'm able to mix a wide range of colors - including a really vibrant orange - because for many years I painted with only titanium white, ivory black, venetian red and yellow ochre. But I just love cadmium orange. I used some in this piece - hope I didn't overdo it. Ahhh - it can be so dramatic. Welcome back, old friend!
This painting is 7 x 5" on Gessobord. Thanks for looking! SOLD

Hi, I know I haven't posted here before but I think this is a great piece. I know that I like a painting a lot when I find myself looking at all the small details, well done.
