I now have 88 1/2 painting days left… So there you are. A little stress added to my daily routine and I am going to be one busy person for the next while trying to catch up the 11 paintings that haven’t yet been painted. I am seeing several sets of similar themed paintings being painted at the same time! 🙂
Unnamed, 5×7 Acrylic
I went for a walk yesterday because I was not sure that the colours that I chose to use for the pitcher were working very well. I used a complimentary colour system of Yellow/Purple: Cadmium Yellow Light, Dioxazine Purple and white. They did the job but I really do think that a darker yellow would have been a better choice.
The goal on this painting was to practice the draped fabric. It was the fabric that I found so hard to see all the slight variations when I was taking Christina’s Still life course in Boston. So I want and need to practice. I think it turned out quite well, but there is definitely improvement needed. I have to say that I miss the feel of oil paint but in the tiny room I am painting in it would be detrimental to my long-term health! 🙂
I plan to show some of the paintings I am doing for my 100 Paintings for 100$ Show and Sale over then next few months. They will be varied and hopefully interesting. I do enjoy painting the small pieces.
So here is a challenge! Help to name this piece and receive a set of art cards from me! You can comment below or on Facebook.
Happy Monday! See you on Thursday.
