Pears and a Persimmon

More Fruit
We painted small still lifes in class today.   This was a color demonstration that I did using only prussian blue, quinacridone burnt scarlet, and new gamboge.  At least I started out using that triad, but I wasn't really happy with the quinacridone burnt scarlet as the red  -  it just wouldn't allow for the bright  rosy red or glowing orange that I wanted.  I added some quinacridone red.

That little palette in the lower right has the triad colors in it that I used in this painting.  Isn't it the cutest little palette you've ever seen!
