In the oil painting class I've been teaching, we recently focused on using specific color schemes and I realized that it would be good for me to put myself through the same paces!  So, this one is a split complementary scheme using cadmium lemon, cadmium orange, vermillion, ultramarine blue and white.  I like that this makes me work with tube colors that I haven't really used alot in the past year as I've worked primarily with a very limited palette--guess it's time to branch out!

I really like all the wonderful colors in the pear. I like the reflections in it also of the oranges. Great job teacher!
