Limited Palette

I'll post the finished glaze painting but I keep putting little touches on it. In the meantime I wanted to post a really successful limited palette still life that Lindsey completed yesterday. This is the is the basic limited palette: venetian red, yellow ochre, black and white. She did a great job and got an amazing amount of color!

When the glaze finally built up to a warm neutral dark brown, I started painting in the light.

 Then I build up the lights even more then started in the shadows carefully, scumbling shadow color paint while letting the dark of the glaze come through 
If there are any areas that aren't dark enough, I'll go back in with another layer of glaze.
