Daily Painting #8 'Aubergine' 6x8" Oil on Board

The composition was set up with the aubergine and coloured papers, I then moved myself around to find a good viewpoint and height.

I looked through my viewfinder to draw with a paint brush onto the board.

Althought he aubergine is very dark in tone I worked on getting a good tonal range throughout.

It was fun to use a big brush and sweep down the body of the aubergine.

    I really like the lilac background to the aubergine. Aubergines are a lovely shape to draw and their shiny skin gives interesting reflections etc, I have found and the colours are challenging but the colour wheel we did in your recent class has been so helpful to get the right sort of colour very quickly and without wasting too much paint.
