Orange Robe - original oil pastel figurative painting



Here's more fooling around on the carton board.  One of my teachers - many, many years ago - read a survey to the class in which one of the findings was that orange was the most disliked color in a painting.  I am always disregarding that, because I love orange - can't wear it, but can use it in paintings like crazy.  So sometimes, when the model wears red, I just take it into the orange range.  The size is 12 x 9".  Thanks for stopping by!

Yeah, I love orange too. Sometimes I think it should be mixed into every color.. This painting is a beauty. I think I would have been tempted to give her a pair of blue slippers just to pull down the blue by her face but who would wear blue slippers with an orange gown? :)

Thanks, Jeff. You are so right - I will give her some blue slippers - then that blue will have someplace else to go!
