Pineapple Painting Work in Progress, Getting Closer
The palette for the painting is earthy: yellow ochre, raw sienna, burnt umber, terra green, sap green, burnt sienna, and the brighter yellow light and yellow medium. I plan to use a small bit of blue in the mix when shading the blades. Also will be adding a bit more yellow ochre and siennas to the shadow side of the fruit. I want the pineapple to look more ripened than what it is now. I painted until the studio got too warm for me. We are having a heat wave in Texas, so I paint early in the morning and back at it in the evening.
Keep the folks dealing with the hurricane on the USA east coast in your prayers,
