Still Life [Oil on canvas, 11”x14”]

Today’s class we watch a demo by Ingrid before tackling our own painting of the still life.  I enjoyed the teaching about working from:

bigger brushes =>                                    smaller brushes

largest shapes =>                                     smaller shapes

drier paint =>                                          oilier paint

thinner paint =>                                       thicker paint

We sketched in the shapes in a very simple way and continued to paint the lower, darker level as we covered the painting with the first layer. 

The second layer was added by using the same mixes of color but adding white to raise them a value or two.

Here’s how it looks now IMG_0311Cheers!
