Here's a dual still life from a class demo. I painted the right square after the left square had dried.
The dark blue/purple cloth is made up of a mixture of Ultramarine Blue, Raw Umber, Alizarin Crimson. Maybe some other colors thrown in here and there. For the shadows of the white cloth, cerulean blue, raw umber, alizarin crimson was used. Maybe some opera rose or cobalt blue too.
By using some of the same colors throughout both the dark and light cloth, a color harmony is achieved.
