The finished painting, cant say much more really. There are still only 3 colours in the whole canvas, titanium white, sap green and raw umber. The only thing that I still have to do is to put a black wash over the background, the reason for that is it's really difficult to match a frame to raw umber.
This is a painting that I have been working on at Gallery 150, Regent Court Shopping Centre, Leamington Spa. I started off with painting the mange tout and I am now trying to make it look like a plastic bag full of mange tout. It was quite worrying starting off because the vegtables looked ok and I had to put white paint all over them. If it didn't work it would have had to end up in the bin. That would not be good when working in the public eye. Colours used are raw umber, titanium white and sap green. There is also 3 layers of sap green on the mange tout.
