"Red Peppers" Step 2

5" x 4"
Oil on Canvas
This is the block in of big shapes. I've found if I block in the painting with middle values I have less chance of getting mud. I used Cadmium Red Medium for the peppers. I mixed a blue gray with Ultramarine Blue, Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium Red and a little white. The Shadow on the table is the same Gray with a little extra White. The top Blue is also the same Gray in the shadow. The Yellow Green in the background is Cadmium Yellow plus Ultramarine Blue. The white on the right side of the table has a little purple add in.
