Cherries Two and One
So many non-art duties keeping me away from the studio lately, so I decided to warm up with friendly cherries.
I have been studying Carol Marine's lesson on color and the importance of gray. I have always known that color stands out against neutral, but I usually end up just painting with color wheel colors. Here I tried to gray down the shadow on the creamy background so that the red cherries will glow. I like it, but now what am I supposed to do about that other teacher who said to use warm shadows in a warm painting!?
If you listen to too many people, you can really get messed up.
