Today, I wanted to give this still life a dark and sombre color sense with rich dark color. I began by blocking in the whole composition with black and very dark umber for the underpainting. Untouched remnants of that stage show through in the ochre pitcher and the mirror.
I began infusing color directly into the wet dark ground which had a strong graying effect on the fresh color added on top.
Painting was completed in about 6 hours.
