|"Mini Orange and White" 5 x 7 Oil on Gessobord|
I have a new DVD I have been studying by Jean Chambers. I'm sure I will be influence by watching the video just not sure how exactly yet. I am always looking for color combinations for rich darks. I learned about Transparent Red Oxide and Ultramarine Blue from Daniel Keys, and from Jean Chambers I have learned about Veridian (Green) and Alizarin Crimson. The latter combo has been used in the background here. I must admit I love the color.
This daily painting is actually a study for a larger piece with greenery in the mid-ground. I used acrylic gesso on some canvas boards I had lying around, as I noticed Jean Chambers paints on a textured white surface. I will be doing the larger study of these pumpkins on the textured surface.
