White Balance

30 cm x 22.5 cm, Oil

Did this to improve my whites and ran into problems of course. For instance it took me forever to figure that I can't mix those greens (oh yes, there are greens! ;-) with ultramarine blue and added Prussian blue (similar to Phtalo but less nasty). Also the overall key of this. Thought it would be low enough and the highlights would come out nicely. A touch lower would be better I think, although the highlights do stick out better than in the photo. Next time I should also push color a little more.
