Day 192: Sunny Oranges, Part 3

I’ve added a bit more colour to this piece which hopefully gives it more depth, and I think it’s my best effort so far at something looser. I guess it’s an example of the overall journey, but I was hoping it would be better…

I think I’m learning that I’ve still got some way to go with ‘suggesting’ or imagining a picture. I still feel a lot happier painting what’s in front of me, mostly because the lighting is key to making it believable and I think it’s something that’s hard to get right when you’re making it up.
