30 PAINTINGS IN 30 DAYS Seven
























"Cooling Down"
8x8" oil on canvas
Painting Seven  $125

SOLD


I thought just now while finishing this up that it was done on the wrong surface and for sure the kind of detail I wanted to achieve would have been best done on linen, however I like the soft gauzy feeling the canvas gives it. There were some pretty interesting water droplets on left top side of the bowl but with the course canvas it just was not workin. So I called it and I'm somewhat pleased. I would like to try it on linen though, those water droplets looked like they'd be fun to paint.

Day seven in the can! I haven't painted this much or this consistently since my first shaky days in DP! And I have the nervous stomach to prove it.

Off to begin the next two! Thank you so much for dropping by.

  4. Clear, clean and crisp. Eggs in water, what a great idea!

    Different surfaces do give such different results don't they? A nice polished gessoed board perhaps when you want to try this subject again could be interesting.

  10. Great composition. I liked how the subject is moved slightly to the left and cropped on the edge. It makes for an interesting painting. Your skill is very impressive! I use gesso end surface, like Kelly was mentioning. It does allow for more control over details.
