Lemons, Garlics & Bananas

Still testing my new colors arrangement. I have to get used to it, I better just experiment. Today I tested some yellows, and grays mixing, Using Cadmium Lemon, and Yellow Cadmium, Blue Thalo, Burnt Sienna and Burnt Umber and a very light hint of Alizarin Crimson.
My first wash was a very pale burnt sienna, slowly gradating into pale blue thalo. then I started with local color of each pieces. Then I started the shadows. Once everything was uber dry, I mixed blue thalo and burnt umber, and with a fine point I did some outlines. I feel forced to put outline when I feel that I failed giving the form of object through their inner gradation. But I really like the feel of the fine brush stroke dancing on the outskirt of a mass. Especially when I do life drawing, like the gesture of the brushstroke help putting down the gesture.
