Farmers Market # 24
Farmers market #24 - Cooking Veggies
8x6in oil on linen $125. SOLD
At the market there was a stall where this lady was
cooking up a big batch of red and green peppers
with onions. The huge pile quickly wilted down and
was then placed in containers..
She used a cast iron stove top with the flame clearly
visible. The smell was quite wonderful.
Another vignette where I have left the linen showing.
Handy for these sketchy, fast paintings. I was asked
if the clear coating was compatible for oil. Absolutely!
It is a clear acrylic primer. Regular gesso is an acrylic
clear primer with.a white power added for surfaces
where the traditional white canvas is desired.
Using the Senso this way is similar to painting your canvas
a color first and having it peek through to unify the harmony.
With Senso, the color is a middle value, natural linen.
