8x6' oil on panel SOLD
The fruit was a gift from a friends garden
She is an artist so she left a
couple with branches. Happy smiles!
I tried something different with this one.
I first painted the panel with gray gesso
and then I painted it as I would
a vignette in watercolor.
I really liked the effect in a frame -
it kind of makes its own border
so I am going to do some more this way.
Here are some greens made
Windsor Newton Perylene Black
Look how natural they are.
Top row - Lemon and P Black
Middle row - Yellow deep and P Black
Bottom row - ochre and P Black
The 3 blue/gray spots are with white added.
You can see why it makes good greens. I think it
would be perfect for the ZORN palette
(Vermillion, yellow ochre, black, white)
because it is a beautiful blue-black
I am picking up steam with my painting.
I will be posting more often as I continue
to get comfortable with paint again.
Thanks for sticking with me...
you are the BEST!
