Emphasis of Gray with a Yellow Peach


Yellow Peach – 6" x 6" Oil on Canvas Panel SOLD

These were found at a local Harris Teeter. I was really drawn to the subdued colors of yellow-green with patches of pink. With this painting I was working towards creating a subtle color palette of grays, whites, and pastels. Yellow peaches are more subdued then the regular orange/pink peaches found in stores, so the transitions from light to dark are more of the emphasis of this painting than color transitions.
