As the “cranberries” ripen

You’ll have to take a look at my post from a couple of days ago to get the “cranberry” reference. In the meantime, I’d say the left side of the painting on the right (are we really confused now?) has been lightly painted over, while the right side of that painting is close to finished. It will probably end up a bit darker still, at least in the shadow areas. However, I am pleased that I’m getting some nice reddish-brown tones going here. Who would have thought that painting over magenta with a mix of mars red and the tiniest touch of pthalo blue could be so rich?

    I liked the bright color of the first pass, but there’s a richness to that deeper color of the second that I love.
