The colors in this mango are just right with the mix of cherry colors, I added a day lily from my garden and it all looked perfect together!
A little about the technique....
Earlier in the day I was coloring with my pastels, and I wondered... why couldn't I start an underpainting for an oil painting with the pastels? I wouldn't have to mix any paint, all the colors are right there to choose from and I'm not a pastel artist, but I know there are techniques using pastel with turpentine, or odorless mineral spirit (oms) to spread and mix them with a brush.
So, I used a panel that already had a dried wash of turp. and burnt umber on it, I drew my design with pastel pencils and colored it in with pastels, and then used a brush and turpentine to wet it and spread it around. It made a very nice start to work from.
