"Tangerine and Mug 2 "

Oil on 5"x7" board
I used the same subjects in this painting as in the last one, just rearranged a bit. The blue, orange, and green seem to go so nicely together.
I notice on my color wheel that blue-violet, red-orange, and yellow-green are a triad color scheme, which is 3 colors equally spaced from each other on the color wheel. Color wheels can be so helpful when trying to compose a painting, I should try and look at mine more often.


  1. I am very partial to the blue/orange scheme.
    A very lovely result here!

  2. Beautiful color and composition! Skillfully painted -well done!

  3. Hi Debbie, I liked your compositions very much.Great work!

  4. You seem to be a very patient painter, and it shows in the sensitive way you express your subjects.
    I also enjoy seeing the photos of your work alongside the objects you are painting.

  5. I love your comments, thank you!!!

  6. Oooooh,ooooh, breakthrough pieces with these, Debbie!!! You are SO onto something painting like you sketch. Love, love, love the new orange/greens/coffee mug paintings. Lovely white on white, gorgeous sculptural quality and wonderful edges too. ...not to mention blanced and peaceful composition. More like this please, they're GORGEOUS.

  7. OMG this is soooo beautiful! Stong yet delicate in its own way!
