I am always doodling things levitating with a shadow dropping below. I deciding to do a few paintings with this effect. This Orange is lifting off a surface and throwing a deep shadow below giving it an other-worldly feeling. The background is a deep teal green* which perfectly complements the orange of the fruit. This painting can stand alone, yet was painted as half of a set and matches the painting "Levitating Orange Half". There is another set with levitating pears that you may also be interested in. The four would look great together!
*Actual color is slightly deeper background than I was able to show in this photo.
