Session #270, Work #266

I was really amazed how intense the purple was on this cabbage. I had to pull out a few other colors hidden away in my taboret to come only close to its intensity. I finally ended up toning down the colors on most of the cabbage so that the more intense areas of color would stand out more.


But I was able to get a really good purple with Manganese Blue, Madder Crimson and a little white. I think if I had some permanent Rose from Winsor Newton I could have come a bit closer to the intensity but I’m not sure. I had lots of fun painting this one.
