The Mandarin K2018

A bowl of fruit on my table.....giving more thought to composition, underpainting, and use of warmer and cooler yellows. Loving this class!! The second photo shows the change when the darker background has been added. This is two glazes of dark over the blue underpainting.

Q&A with kaleidimo7981496

Margreet v TK asked:
Great he difference between the first and the second photo. It makes such a difference what color you where use. The name of the painting is 'Mandarin …..'? The warm colors are great, also the bananas!
kaleidimo7981496 answered:
Thanks Margreet! Yes....the darker background makes a big difference. This was an interesting project for me. I named the painting "The Mandarin" because I wanted the orange of the mandarin to be the focus of this artwork. :o)
