Hi guys!, This little piece is done finally after a few failed attempts. With it being so tiny, the crosshatched strokes I wished to create at first were coming out a little too thick and clumsy, but each time I just rubbed it down and started again.. I think it came out well in the end!..
Check out the WIP for this piece at: Testing DIY Silverleaf Sealant, Size & Colour Palettes.
Went for a much looser technique in this the 2nd of this 3 part series. Whereas the 1st was painted with a size 4 flat synthetic brush, this piece was painted completely with a relatively large Size 9 flat hog bristle. No preliminary underpainting or drawing was done either, rather I started blocking in with colour straight away on just a toned background, placing each block of colour as accurately as possible straight away and thus building the whole painting in this straightforward manner alone.
This piece was really a joy to create!.. :)
Loved the light reflections that this wine glass created on my olive green wall and decided to design the composition so as to have an almost abstract feel to it.
Painted alla prima and measuring just 2.5" x 3.5", this piece would make an ideal dinner table display piece :)
First new art post of the year!.. Yay!.. Been experimenting with different watercolour skin pallets lately.. This is one of my favs so far!..
Hope you all had a grand celebration on New Years, and here's to an Amazing year ahead!..
Had a little fun with the edges of this figure study in oil with some pallet knife gestural sgraffito.
Using a very minimal pallet of light red, cadmium yellow, cobalt blue and raw umber, this piece was painted alla prima!..
