This is my painting with base colors of Gray, Violet, Flesh, Dark Purple Brown and Cadmium Red on the Bag. Plus a dark value for the shadow. I mixed a Grayed down color of Yellow for the base in the background.
8"x 10" Oil on Canvas Board This is the first step in painting "The Red Bag". I toned the canvas with a mixture of Ultramarine Blue with a touch of Alizarin Crimson. This was applied with a cotton rag dipped in turp. While this was drying I mixed a few base colors.
