oil 16x20 inches While painting along I noticed that over and over again I'm mixing the three primaries. If you asked me how I mixed color for any part of the painting, the answer would be red, yellow and blue in different ratios. Backgrounds still scare me, so this time I'm taking the advice of a fellow blogger: go back and forth between object and background rather than saving background for last. Hopefully I can work still wet edges this way. Again, please excuse the glare.
