@Rich_A The orange. Is this your version of a halo? Very traditional concept in portraits of a religious nature. It seems to come to you naturally, if it wasn't intentional. Nice religious touch that puts your painting into a category that seems to imply extra dimensions of reality. Dramatic. I like it because the color is there but the shape of the halo is non-traditional and that the painting wouldn't be the same without it. That is, when I hold my hand over the halo and obliterate the color, the painting seems incomplete. Just saying.
