Pears . . .

This is another go at yesterday's composition.
I "painted" the objects with clear water, and then started dropping in the local color  (the natural color of a thing in ordinary daylight, uninfluenced by the proximity of other colors)  of each piece of fruit, and letting them bleed into each other a little.  I used a triad again (a combination of the three primary colors  -  red, yellow, and blue).

Today I used prussian blue, quinacridone red, and quinacridone gold.  It's essential  that you  pick out a triad  that will give you a good color mix for the subject.  I had first planned to use quinacridone burnt scarlet for my red, but it wouldn't have given me a good orange, and the persimmons are a pretty important part of this composition.  Using quin. red instead of quin. scarlet gave me a good persimmon orange, and still grayed down well for the other fruit

Ooops  -  I didn't put a shadow under the bottom persimmon.
