Another Orange Set



I tried a red ground on this one. It makes the shadows of the oranges come out better and adds to the overall color harmony.



I had fun forming the oranges and feel like my values are getting better. On to the next.

Oranges



Stayed up late doing this one. Loose yet defined, it's headed where I'd like to take it. Like the values and color temps but I find as soon as I concentrate on those two things, I start to lose my design.


Next chance I get, I'm going to try drawing first and then paint and see if I can straighten out my values and design before I hit the color.

New start

Looking forward to my new start in updating this blog. Hope to have many more paintings to come in the future.

I need to try to shoot for more color harmony and probably a little less Alizarin.

Carol Marine an inspiration on this one, great artist in Austin, http://carolmarine.blogspot.com/.
