Color Study

Working on today's painting and will post it tomorrow.  This is a  5"x7"color study I did last year.
The pitcher is black but I used no black. Tried to see all the color reflected in the black and other objects ...and in blue wall from the red floor.  Had a book with many more practice studies and might try some in my daily paintings... just bought a pack of color paper at Walmart.  Also good for learning how to move your light source to get the shadows you want..Shadows do so much for a still life. With this I limited the colors I used to just yellow, 2  blues, red, green and white.  Learning to see color and match it is the biggest battle... and fun.
