April 21, Warm Red

I use a limited pallet of magenta, yellow, and a warm and a cool blue with white to paint on my black backgrounds.  One of the many challenges I have in teaching my students how to paint with such a narrow range of colors is in how to get a true red.  The magenta leans towards blue making it purple, so you have to warm it up with a bit of yellow and you'll get a wonderful red!  Which is what I really like about this apple!
This one is being donated to the Art4Shelter Fundraising sale at the Burnett Gallery at the Chamber's hotel on May 6th!  Come see if you can be lucky enough to snag it off the wall for $30!
