Cool Blue

Cool Blue, Acrylic on Gessoboard, 6"x6", $195
 Day eight of the 30 in 30 Challenge.  This pair of garlic bulbs was an exercise in the use of blues. The dominant color is phthalo blue a strong greenish blue (even though I use the red shade).  I mixed it with alizarin crimson, cadmium orange, Naples yellow (Golden's version) and white to get the range of blues that I needed. As with yesterday's painting, the camera and my computer really didn't want to cooperate - the blues are off and some of the contrast has been lost.  Nevertheless, you can get a pretty good idea of what the painting looks like.

To purchase this painting, please go to the 30 in 30 Challenge page on my website.
