I loved the colors in this photo. It was taken by me in a courtyard  (I think it was in Rome) and the sun's shining on the building and the bright table cloths. Working on landscapes, I decided to try this one. Remember, all the vertical element have to be the darkest value...
The gorgeous bricks are underpainted with Indian yellow, and then while wet, painted over with ice blue mixed with transparent oxide brown or transparent oxide orange  or cadmium orange...I love the color these mixes create.
