When the Texas Longhorns (football team) beat OU, Oklahoma University, I was so thrilled that I decided to do an orange and white painting in honor of my Longhorns. Yay!! Our team has struggled this year and this was a great game. So I found a dark orange peach and put it on a white plate with an off-white background. White on white is quite challenging, basically a lot of grays. So I added some color tints to create a number of interesting grays. All with the palette knife. Was fun!! More to come!
