This is the third painting of my Orange mini-series. It felt a little silly just painting a single orange, but I envisioned a trio, so I needed this one to complete it.
Don’t let its simplicity fool you … each of the paintings I’ve done for the challenge so far – regardless of subject or style – has taken an average of 6 hours to paint. Which is twice as long as I’d hoped, considering each day I also have to spend a few hours photographing the work, editing it in Photoshop, writing the blog post, getting the word out on social media, and then start planning the next painting.
I do enjoy the process – everything except the photography – but I am already feeling a little burnt out and sleep deprived! AND, after working so tightly for the last few paintings, I’m really looking forward to letting loose on something big soon. I do have a 48″x48″ stretched canvas ready and waiting for me to paint next month. Smile.
Here is the collage of all three Orange paintings…
See my larger gallery paintings on the Available page on my website. Many of them are currently in galleries in St. Lucia, Barbados or Burlington, ON, but if a gallery is not listed next to the painting, then it could be available directly from my studio in Burlington.
