I am back to painting fruit and I love setting up a simple still life in my studio to work on a specific idea. Right now I am trying different background colors and different shadow colors based on a triad of Cerulean blue, cadmium yellow light , and Quinacridone magenta. The grayed down colors are a nice compliment to the apples and are less saturated than the pure colors used in the fruit. (The shadow is not nearly as purple as it appears in the photo.)
I spent some time this afternoon in my studio with two sleeping dogs who are worn out from running on the beach this week end. A good time was had by all.
