More FruitWe painted small still lifes in class today. This was a color demonstration that I did using only prussian blue, quinacridone burnt scarlet, and new gamboge. At least I started out using that triad, but I wasn't really happy with the quinacridone burnt scarlet as the red - it just wouldn't allow for the bright rosy red or glowing orange that I wanted. I added some quinacridone red.
That little palette in the lower right has the triad colors in it that I used in this painting. Isn't it the cutest little palette you've ever seen!
