Peach Delight - Color Fun!

I say this painting is color fun, because there's nothing better (to me) in art than complementary colors that play so well together. Ripe peaches have such gorgeous warm color tones; dark maroons, bright reds, oranges, school-bus yellows, and of course, the actual "peach" color... there's no way to combine them wrong. The complements to those warm colors are cool - royal blues, periwinkle, purples, and even some muddy greens. I haven't been keeping track of my painting time so vigilantly anymore, but I know this painting took less than 30 minutes to complete. Peach Study, watercolor, 6"x9".
