DS Naples Yellow
M. Graham Cobalt Blue
Cad. Red Lt. (not sure of mfg.)
Holbein Naples Yellow
DS Phthalo Blue (red shade)
Perm. Aliz. Crimson
This was an experiment using the semi-transparent Naples yellow. The Daniel Smith Naples has more red in it while the Holbein Naples is a truer yellow. Under warm lighting, the yellows and the reds in these pears have a lovely glow.
I have a lot to learn about painting shadows, water ratio and getting smoother edges. Guess my age is finally coming into play with the shaky hands. I tried to use warm light with cool shadows with some warm thrown in to the shadows. It is all good practice and will keep on trying to get a look I'm pleased with.
