Just Paint More

Red Pear Still Life
About This Painting: I've always found red difficult to work with. If you wanted a lighter area you cant add white it will just make pink. Now that might work sometimes but more often its just not where you wanted the image to go. I have found that orange work wells. Now for the shadow it just depends on the subject and the light. In the above still life I used Transparent Red Oxide in some areas and in the very darkest areas of the pear I used purple.

I think each time I use red a get just a little bit better so as I always say the only way to become a better artist is jut to paint more.

So put the brushes to work.
