Fork and spoon

Today's painting had me looking carefully at the reflections and light in silverware.  It's very challenging and fun for me to follow the contours and look carefully at the shapes created by the light. I'm especially interested in starting to see color shifts from warm to cool as the form turns.  In the bowl of the spoon, I was excited to see some yellow colors that give the spoon more of a concave shape.  I really liked using only three colors to mix the greys:  burnt sienna, yellow ochre, and french ultramarine (and some white, of course).  Red, yellow and blue can do almost anything together!
