5x7 Oil on Canvas Panel
This is week 3 of my painting buddies weekly painting challenge. Autumn colors must appeal to us all since this is the 2nd week of an autumn related painting. I just love all the gorgeous shades of orange we see in the fall and tried to show some of that here. The green makes a nice contrast to the orange. The stem on the reference photo had a nice curl to it; not sure I succeeded as well with that.
