I struggling to find a good color to substitute for this pink bag that is in the foreground of the photograph.
There is no way that I could reach the unnatural pink of this bag with basic oil colors. I would have to get a tube of hot pink, if it even exists. But I don’t want such a high chroma color in the painting anyway, it would draw all the attention. For the first pass I just painted the bag gray, but I don’t like that either. I’m trying a reddish type mixture but even that I feel is too bright and eye catching.
