Hi Matt, I am inspired by this still life painting and want to try to imitate the mood. I set up an arrangement (see photos) and did an initial oil under painting in raw umber. I haven’t completed all the tutorials in PTO, so excuse me if I’m asking a redundant question, but how can I capture the mood of the reference painting? How do I get my colors to have the same warm grey tone throughout the painting?
Thanks in advance, Donna
Thanks, Matt. I watched the podcast. I’m wondering if you ever had problems when you start mixing Burnt Umber with Titanium White. I had a painting teacher who forbade mixing earth pigments with white. She said that it causes “bloom”. I’ve had some bad results myself with that combination. Donna
