2 New Still Life Studies

These are 2 still life paintings I did when I was back in upstate NY for a wedding a couple weeks ago. These are also done in the Zorn palette. This time though, since cad red was so expensive, I pick up a random red color that I thought looked similar. At first I was unsure of how this new red color would work as I was used to using cad red light. This new red turned out fine (I think its called Grumbacher Red), basically what I am getting at is that you don't necessarily need an exact color palette to paint with, as long as you have basic colors, just paint and practice.
