Munsell to Paint Some Fruit

Posted on Category:Paul Foxton - Munsell color
Setup for 1st Color Study

All enthused I went down to our cafe and brought home a lemon, an apple and an orange. I painted a couple of cubes with some acrylics. The shadow box was set up and I was ready to paint.

This should be simple, right? Of course not.

These both look worse than when I was just painting by eye! In fact, they look MUCH worse! Not only have I missed everything about the colors, the drawing is really wonky, too!

I think I’ll just go to bed early tonight. I’ll begin to listen and start doing color Paul’s way in the morning. Step by baby step. Just don’t give up!
