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.
I am a painter living in Vermont. I've been painting for about 20 years learning as I go along. In the last couple of years I've been learning a bunch of new painting techniques and experimenting with new subject matter.
