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 down …
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.
Just started with this still life, my light source is a window close to my still life. So tomorrow I can resume 🙂
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.
Here’s another update of my painting, getting there, almost complete 🙂 just have the cloth to finish and some tweaking here and there……and viola!
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 🙂
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 🙂
