Chilean Peaches

I am still working with cloth trying to capture the folds and creases.  I used a cerulean blue half tone which was cool against the warm reds and oranges of the peaches.  The exercise for this painting was to create a warm palette of colors using tints and half tones to create a warm rather than hot palette.  I carried a little of the warm colors into the fabric to create a nice harmony and a little glow.  I am pleased that I am learning a little more about how to use color.

I just read all the posts about mixing colors and wonder how watercolor could be used in this way . The color you mixed a beautifully and clearly more complex than color s right from any tube. I also see a rich consistency that
adds to the volume of the folds.
