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.
