Not that blue!

8°C, clouds.


Last lesson today.
Mild cycling conditions.
Painting considered: The hat(s) is the wrong colour, it needs red methinks. Perhaps Cadmium red & a scarlet. Neat out of the tube paint never looks right, but rose madder + orange makes a very finered indeed.
A unbeneficial effect of using rose+sienna is now clear. The colours are tending towards that bland shop-window mannequin effect. It seems to be to do with the way white & earth colours work together. Unless I goofed & used the titanium white instead of the zinc.
Change it then.
