Green and Orange

For a long time, actually a decade or so,  I have painted with a very limited colour palette. Ultramarine, Raw Umbra, Naples Yellow and white. Perhaps occasionally some violet or purple. Last week I found the box where I had stored all those oil paint tubes that have not felt my colours.Then I experimented with Green and Orange shades.

Here are now these two bold sisters, could them be considered as a diptych?
Experiment was easier, because already with Acrylic paints I have played with bolder  colours. Still these feel somehow strange. For me it is easier to relate with these two:

in these two have the serenity that I’m searching for. The orange and green seem to be so full of life…it is almost dangerous.
