The Daily Paintworks challenge this week is to paint a white object sitting on patterned fabric with the resulting reflected color. In addition, no earth colors may be used...just the primaries and white. I learned I could mix yellow ochre easily, but I did miss burnt umber for making a quick rich black. The challenge, while about reflected color poses another challenge: draw the pattern receding in space so the object appears sitting on a horizontal plane.
