Lemons & Apple on Olive Cloth

" Lemons & Apple on Olive Cloth "
Painting # 119
I've wanted to use this olive patterned cloth for some time and decided yellow on yellow would make for a sunny and cheery painting. Cheery is what we need these days! I'm going to watch a Dana Carvey dvd after dinner which should be good medicine, too. Sending love and positive thoughts your way!
Tomorrow I will look for other bright things to paint.

I just love this. The way you do both drapery and patterns on fabric just lifts me up.I also like how you simplify right off the bat by choosing complimentary colors. Makes the whole session so much easier when you know where you're going.
Thanks for sharing about the premixing. I have found it to be very helpful to not spend time floundering through the wrong color choices and wiping off.

Thanks, Mary. Yes, having a plan at the start does make it all go more smoothly.
