You guessed it - peaches again. It is summer in the Texas hillcountry and the peaches are overflowing. Expect them to continue - at least until I get sick of them.
Peaches are a real challenge for me to paint. I am used to shiny objects and easy highlights to pull it all together. Peaches are fuzzy and have subtle color transitions. I really liked the purple here, and tried to pull out the green in the peaches to compliment the purple. Someone asked me once if I always think about color schemes when I start a painting. I do. Mostly I go by instinct, but I have found that if I add a compliment to the dominant color somewhere in the painting, even if subtle (or not) it is more successful.
