Here's the Palette after the painting was done. I really didn't use much of the cerulean blue and none of the black.
Composition was pretty simple..gray plate and scrunched checkered tablecloth on the ground(grass). Here all the colors are blocked in...nothing fancy here...used watered brush half loaded with color to give the varied blues. Had issues with the pie---apple pie just isn't that interesting.
I kicked it up a notch by adding blueberries and darker sauce drips. My mom-in-law does signature cuts on the top of her pies of a simple wheat pattern, which always lets the steam/and fruit escape.
I tried to keep this simple, this really is a sketch---anymore and I will poke holes in the paper. And I hate the buckling, maybe I have to iron them???
Hope you had a great weekend. I'm going to try for three or four paintings tomorrow and get almost caught up. Gosh, tomorrow is DAY 7...yikes!
