Still Life #6

20" x 20" oil painting

20″ x 20″ oil painting



Continuing with the pitcher still life oil paintings, I painted the entire surface in madder red as an under painting before beginning. Hence there are little areas where specs of red show through (parts of the canvas where I either missed covering or it was difficult for the brush I was using was too large to handle a tight space). So you get these interesting places of color emphasis that’s a nice accent. Still trying to keep brush work somewhat loose but I find it tempting to make the images tighter but I think that would diminish the painting’s character. I’ve got a few more to work with before I’ve exhausted  this subject. Granted there may be many out there who think I reached that point weeks ago, so leave me a comment.
