2 colors x 2 objects = 4 paintings

Tea and Fruit, 10 x 8 inches, oil on canvas

     I had planned to do a little warm up painting today and then go on to something else.  Didn’t go as planned, but that was OK.  The plan was to section off a 16 x 20 inch canvas sheet and paint 4 small paintings with just 2 colors Cadmium Orange and Cobalt Blue and White (I don't count white as a color).  Well I did just that, but spent more time on them than I had planned.
