I will speak of beauty of shapes, and I don’t mean just shapes of living figures or their imitations in painting, but straight lines and curves and the shapes made from them.
-Plato quoting Socrates
Mixing complementary colors: ultramarine blue and burnt sienna.
I hate doing color charts. It is difficult for me to stand their mixing paint, without actually creating anything. However, I do see the benefit of doing them, and I need more practice mixing colors, especially understanding how to create neutrals from mixing compliments.
I was inspired after reading Betina Fink’s blog on the subject matter.
I totally enjoyed painting this apple. I like how the tonal progression turned out. My color matching is improving, the colors were pretty spot on.
The white you see on the halftones and dark areas of the apple surface is the light reflecting of the wet paint. Just notice the apple stem does not go all the way down. I should fix that :0
