As the layers continue, there is some purple added to the alizarin to darken it and some brown madder where the red is slightly browner in color. The sharp edges of the highlights are softened. The deep shadow near the stem is painted in and the background painted wet into wet of palette greys.
Completed as a study for tomorrow's larger painting.
Today, while varnishing paintings, I decided to change the background color (which meant changing some of the foreground color, then the eye color) of an earlier painting.
