I like the shape of this little jug, reminds of something in the Dutch masters time - Vermeer, 'Girl with the Pearl Earring'.
I tried a different board today, no white primer, instead a clear primer to show the original colour of the canvas wrapped around the board. It was a joy to paint especially with the light colours it really showed up. This was one of those paintings that evolved it's self, with a little help from me!
You can see the raw canvas board showing part way through the painting.
Like the creamy colours and touch of blue and even though there is no obvious surface that it is sitting on, somehow it looks grounded. I think you have achieved this through the direction of the brush strokes and tones.ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear you have been poorly, missed your paintings! :-(
