"Orange Edges" pastel painting

"Orange Edges" 8 x 10 pastel

Just finished this painting today.  It is done on dark purplish suede matboard.  Getting green and orange to look natural together was more of a challenge than I thought it would be!

Oh wow! Gorgeous! Not only did you get the green & orange & purple to work together but it just glows! I see another prize winner here :-)

Carolyn, this is beautiful. . . .you have used a secondary palette, and it goes together quite natually----the color is wonderful, and it glows! Aren't you loving that suede matt board?? Really a nice painting.
