"Plate of Fruit w/ Peaches" 8"x10"
Oil on hardboard panel
I learned a lot painting this, one was that I should remember to put black on my palette. I usually try to do without it, and make a black with whatever dark colors I have out already. I experimented with a few different ways to do the white cloth, using mixes of white with blue/red/yellow... or just a mixes of a brown/yellow ochre with white, and adding blue..??? I tried lots of things, but I wound up making a gray of ivory black and white, and adding cadmium orange.
I like it.
