8 inch X 8 inch oil on canvas panel
I really enjoyed painting this one. I think all the landscapes I've been painting helped me with my color mixing. This one went quickly, and was one of those happy times at the easel.
I used Alizarin Crimson darkened with Thalo Green for the darkest areas on the plums. I lightened Alizarin Crimson with Cad Red Light and Cad Yellow medium. And the background is Ultramarine Blue mixed with Titanium white. For the highlights on the plums, I added a little white to my plum "puddle".
Thanks for looking!
