Weekly Photo Challenge: Orange

Leave a comment

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Orange you glad it’s photo challenge time?.”

Nothing like a spectacular  orange-hued sunrise over the Coast Mountain Range in northern California, looking across from my cabin:Daybreak2

And here are several of my sketches and a painting  I think have some interesting, though more subtle, hues of orange.  The first at left is a quick, colored sketch of Verocchio’s sculpture of David, which has  nice orange ochre hues; the sketch to the right is of a model at a recent life drawing session, and has some  interesting orange pastel shading; and the final, bottom painting has white gesso, purple, and a  vivid reddish orange design.
