9x12, oil on stretched canvas
I keep learning from this process. So, I'm looking for a wide range of values in all the colors. To get pale values, I have to add a lot of white. That seems to make the colors look chalky. I walked past this in the semi-dark and noticed that the pale colors jumped out. I think I'll try Zinc white (also known as mixing white) and see if that makes a difference. Titanium might be too stark.
Another solution might be to make a monochrome underpainting first, then go on with colors. I'd really have to learn about transparency!
As far as the painting itself, it seems like another riot of color. I think I mostly kept the orange color for the bright parts of the fruit, since dark orange is brown, and it's more neutral than I want. Also, it's a little cartoon-like, although that's a matter of taste.
Hmm. Neutrals. Neutrals. So far I've found that they sap the energy. I'll have to play with that.
