As you can see, if you compare with the last post, I’ve added some darks into the kale and made it so much more lively! The darks I used were a mix of thalo green blue shade and quinacridone magenta. This is a great dark combination that’s also transparent, and I plan on using it in the background along with charging into it some other colors used in the existing veggies to give it color harmony.
And you can see it here, I’ve taken the plunge and started on the background. I think I’m going to be happy with it and you can see that the background is really broken up into sections which is nice. I can work on parts and soften the edge where they would join up so that there isn’t a hard line where they meet. you can see I did that to the left of the pepper stem.
I plan on using this background with other colors mingled in with it to cover all the area where the scapes are, and I think the dark colors will make the sinewy snakelike scapes “pop”
What do you think?
