"My Secret" --- Sold

Click Here to Bid

I felt the gray I used yesterday is a little too cool. So today I tried a new combination: transparent oxide yellow + ultramarine blue. I like this one better. It made the background warmer. I really appreciate several friends sharing their gray recipe with me. I don't have any secret in painting. I have been growing right in front of you.

This is my 5th painting of the month. I have been a genuine "daily painter" for this week. I will try my best to make this momentum going.

Another great piece. Thanks for trying new things and sharing with us! I like the pears in the previous post as well.

Love your experimentation! You show texture so well (aside form use of color, composition, etc).
Thank you!!

Have you ever tried to use Torrit Grey, it's complimentary from GAMBLIN, they keep it behind the counter, you have to ask for it?
Thanks for sharing your art.

I love this composition--the familiar studio objects. That gray is much nicer than your last post. I don't have the yellow you used though--suggestions for a substitute? Very nice!
