Red Cabbage


This 8x6, oil/linen panel was an exercise in getting the brilliant colors of the red cabbage before it became cole slaw for lunch today. I used several reds to get there... Quinacridone, Cad Red Medium, and a little Alizaron Crimson, but I think it was the rogue and long forgotten tube of Magenta that made the difference. I must think about bringing it into my pallette more often.

"Rogue and long forgotten tube of magenta"--how hilarious. I feel the same way about mine.

This is an awesome composition.
