Orange & Gold

Orange & Gold 6x6 oil on canvas. Hmmm. I found this little gold tin at a garage sale and picked it up just for this very purpose - a prop. I've been contemplating the idea of painting reflective surfaces and have done some but not like this one. Really, the gold color was not gold at all but ochre, ultramarine and some yellow. In fact, it's more green than gold on my palette. I find that interesting. Often the colors on my palette are nothing what you'd expect for the subject matter. At any rate, I was happy with the result... and ate the orange. :)
