Complementary Colors Challenge

"Complementary Colors: Red and Green"

I'm taking a class and this study was one of the assignments. We had to choose any complementary colors from three pairs - green and red, yellow and purple or orange and blue. I chose red and green.

It was interesting to decide which color to use to paint yellowish apples. The plate actually was golden, and in my study it looks more silver. Well, at least it looks metallic. I need to paint such challenges from time to time. It really teaches a lot about values.
