Seasoned Olive Oil

6"x4" oil on raymar panel. In my opinion, olives rank amongst the most beautiful of the greens. And like many greens, a key to mixing it is red. Cad red is fine, but sometimes hitting it with a little alizarin crimson yields beautiful results. Oh, and another key, avoid white unless it is absolutely necessary. Bring up the values with your yellows instead of your white. Like all art lessons, the white rule doesn't apply to all situations, so feel free to totally disregard everything I just typed.
