Tulips and strawberry tea…

Worked on this till last light, bout halfway at this point. A few more days work left. I put this painting aside for a bit so I can view it with a fresh eye and tackle the problems. I am going to glaze the teacup as the values are a too high and also the tulips still need work and will be toned downย …

Some easel time….

Yay, made some progress….managed to grab the last hour of daylight to work on my painting. I’m pleased with how it’s turning out. I’d been pondering the background pattern, and decided to include it as a sort of ambient flavor, like background music.

Tulips and strawberries….

Just started with this still life, my light source is a window close to my still life. So tomorrow I can resume ๐Ÿ™‚

New painting update…

Well here it is, a painting inspired by David Leffel ๐Ÿ™‚

On my easel…..

Started a new still life today and this time going back to painting to natural day light. No more fake lights, too many issues. The under-painting is done and have began painting in color.

Almost there…

Here’s another update of my painting, getting there, almost complete ๐Ÿ™‚ just have the cloth to finish and some tweaking here and there……and viola!

Mother’s Kiss

I had completely missed ever blogging about this painting I did of Banafshe and Kuddus. I do have intentions of one day completing this painting ๐Ÿ™‚

New still life…

Just started this still life, sketched in my subject matter with ultramarine blue and transparent red oxide. The silver bowl and pretty teacup inspired me to paint this still life. I wanted something colorful and light, looking forward to painting in color now. This is a warm up for some serious still life painting ๐Ÿ™‚

Progress…

I painted in the orange and re-arranged the twigs, still needs some fine tuning….

Chalice and grapes on my easel…

Spent my day working on this little still life, have some tweaking to do still. I’m pleased with the outcome thus far.
