Sugar Bowl and Apple on Striped Kitchen Towel

20 Jan 2015

11x14 in. Acrylic on canvas board.

Painted from a reference image on wetcanvas.com as part of a paint-along exercise. This is the first painting that I worked on over the course of several weekends. I started with a basic block-in sketch, then notan, followed by a rough black-and-white value painting, then added the colors.

The palette consisted of Cadmium Red Medium, Ivory Black, Dioxazine Purple, Raw Umber, and Titanium White.
