Silver Bowl Tangerines on Blue

The colors in this paintings are complementary - orange and blue.  And the neutralized greenish tones on the wall are a mix of the two colors, which adds harmony. There is a lot of medium value, a small amount of dark and the smallest amount of light value. The main subject of the painting is  two and a half tangerines -  divided into two unequal groups.  The reflection is subordinated to the tangerines,  The reflection is simplified as one shape, reduced in value and reduced in saturation. I like the shape of the metal bowl - it makes good reflections.
