Re: Still life: Fruits and a blue vase

Boogiechile, Ken, Bhindi:
Thank you for comments and advise. Ken, pastel feels a lot easier now since you don’t have to mix anything and don’t have to wash the brushes! So far all the still life are from live compositions and a cool light, about 5000K. I am working on a deer skull with fancy lighting from photo for obvious reasons.
Patrick, I have used black but tried to use it with medium and or mixed with dark colors. All the videos that I have watched the artists use black but sparingly.

Great depth. Your values give it a nice 3D denominational effect. I feel like i can reach out and grab one.

Thank you Tylor, I finished this work touching the edges a little bit.

Re: Still life: Fruits and a blue vase

Hey Moises,.....I think that looks just GREAT!

If you are new to oils, you will soon be a talent to be noticed!

You are probably realizing that the primary difference between oils and pastels is that you will need to do a great deal of mixing of colors, compared with pastels. I understand that with pastels, one just picks an appropriate color from a vast array of possible colors, whereas with oils, you will MIX the color you require from a comparatively limited palette.

One can get by quite easily with having a palette of perhaps 7 colors, including White and Black, in oil paint. If properly selected, you can match nearly any color in nature, or from a reference photo.

I used to teach a class in oil painting, and for our palette, we used the following colors:

Ivory Black
Ultramarine Blue
Burnt Umber
Cadmium Red Light (or medium)
Cadmium Yellow Light
Titanium White

With only this selection of colors we were able to match nearly any landscape from reference photos. M. Graham offers wonderful paints whose binder is Walnut Oil. The great, unsung "hero" of oil paints, and the most bang for the buck can be realized with Grumbacher Pretested Oil Paints. Their binder is Linseed Oil. Both are reasonably priced, and are excellent regarding their handling.

If you wished to add one more color, I'd choose either Anthraquinone Red (Permanent Alizarin Crimson--PR177) or perhaps Thalo Blue (PB15). This may depend upon the subjects you might wish to paint.

Your painting here exhibits a rather excellent knowledge of color, so I imagine that you will experience much success in the mixing and managing of colors when working in oil paint.

Good painting!

Re: Still life: Fruits and a blue vase

William,
Thank you very much for your comments and most of all the words of encouragement to continue painting oil! Yes, it is very different to paint oil now when compared with pastel. However I keep trying practically every day when I have the time to play with the different mixtures of color. I also have all those paints that you mentioned. I have purchased many videos and most of them use the oil tubes you suggested. Two names that impressed me were Jeff Legg and David Cheifetz who apparently learned from David Leffel, I guess, since they have similar techniques.
You are fortunate to live in an area where Art is very popular and have the exposure of all these masters. Unfortunately for me I don't have that luxury in the southwest. In fact I am thinking to attend a workshop in Scottsdale, AZ the next year with David Cheifetz.
Thank you again and have a nice day.
