I must love a challenge. I also love magenta. But oil paint and magenta in the sun don’t mix well…at least I have a hard time with it. I’ve seen other artists do too…if you go with a real magenta and try to lighten it, it looks blue and not sunny, so you basically have to go warm and it turns red or orange…which is fine, but it’s not magenta! The table cloth here was a silky hot pink material and some of the flowers were varying shades of intense pinks and purples.
The palette knife comes out! And I’ve photographed it in a way that you can see that. Remind me to try something a little less challenging tomorrow.
