8X6 framed oil on canvas SOLD
Found this great little bowl at the Thrift Store. I love
the delicate red floral pattern. Since I "lost" (accidentally
threw away with the rest of my "lost" supplies) my favorite
blue Still Life bowl, I'm hoping this one will take it's place.
I tried out some of the new skills I learned at Carol Marine's
Workshop. First, it is painted on a Raymar Canvas panel, a
big improvement from the usual Masonite I've been using for
over a year now. It has the hard surface I like and the bit of
tooth that the canvas offers. Secondly, I tried the toned canvas
rather than my usual black ground. This is going to take some
getting use to since I have to retrain my eye to the way the
color looks when it's laid down. The goal is to find the value
and color before laying down the stroke. I'm finding this much
harder than expected. Third, I tried to paint with straight lines.
This was the hardest of the three.
