Calla Lilies, Leaves, and Pitcher

14 x 18"

So many different whites and grays in this one. I've started using Cremnitz white in addition to Titanium white, the standard (at least the way I was taught). The Cremnitz is a warmer white, so when mixing it with a bright red, for example, it doesn't dull the color as much as Titanium does. I know it's going to be really helpful the next time I'm painting hot pink flowers, not to mention Xmas ornaments!
