Painting Greys

closed cups

Sometimes painting greys can be just as fun as painting brighter colours. I often use French Ultramarine and Burnt Sienna but sometimes I use Indian Red instead of the Sienna. Either way once I have the blue/red mix on the page I drop in a little Yellow Ochre which, being more opaque than the other colours, tends to stay where I put it without travelling too far or turning into mud.

Continuing with the fruit/veg theme these closed cup mushrooms were interesting to sketch. I might add some text to this page later on.

Does anyone else have a favourite fruit or vegetable to sketch ?
