Coffee Kettle & Tomato

I wanted to share another class work piece of mine, mostly because I stated in a post on here about my favorite papers to use for pastels. I like sanded papers the best. Mi-Tientes works well for me too.

I didnít have any mid tone ColourFix paper at the time so I used felt gray Mi-Tientes paper, the rough side. (I should have used the smooth side, learning through trial and error.) A3 size, Rembrandt soft pastels. Reference picture from an online class Iím taking. I went with complimentary colors blue and orange. I used zero white and zero black, which is a first for me.

Success! White is not white, and black is not black is correct. So you are ahead of the game. Nicely done.

Re: Coffee Kettle & Tomato

Thanks Water Girl! Being mostly self taught I never learned about color theory. Iím loving learning about it so far. I love how combining the right colors can take a flat piece and make it pop, draw in the viewer, add interest, etc (that and the correct tones). Please excuse my rambling! I am just having so much fun!

Thank you, Karen. I'm going to write this down and place it above my easel. Simply stated and profoundly useful.

Amhahn, rambling on deliriously about pastels is a sure sign you've come to the right place! Welcome. And let me congratulate on a fine still life. Your enthusiasm seems to be reaping rewards.

John

Re: Coffee Kettle & Tomato

Very nicely done! Your "whites" are believable and I'm so glad you are enjoying your pastels. I love painting white eggs from life, especially when placed on different colored surfaces. You can have a lot of fun learning to see all the beautiful colors that appear, especially in the shadows. Great work on your grape painting too!

This is lovely. Painting white items is great fun.
