52Frames Complementary Colours Week 3

This week the challenge is complementary colours (https://52frames.com/). I was away at Xmas and thought the fruit bowl on the table might make an interesting picture at some point. I used it for this week’s challenge as the fruit have good strong colours. The mat was originally red but I reworked it to incoorporate the complementary colours.

I want to use these challenges to try different techniques… not just do things I know I enjoy. This week I used oil pastel. I love some of the effects, such as the orange skin, however the pastels were difficult to use on such a small image; the concertina book is A5. Some areas are not as successful, but I enjoyed playing with something I haven’t used for years!
