Oil version, as promised. I had time to work on it today–the car is quite complex. Not sure what I’ll be doing, if anything, these last 5 days….count down!
This was fun at the end of the day…I liked playing with these colors.
I don’t know that the studies had any effect on this. Hmm. Do you like this one or the gouache? The thumbnail studies or the bigger “study.” I will need to revisit this.
Just thought I’d play around with different ideas on how to paint darkness in the city, using oils this time. before I attempted the actual piece.
I’m kinda digging the grapes so I bought some new ones because they were shriveling up. I also liked painting the square little vase and decided to try to fit the whole thing in this time so I enlarged my work surface. Also changed the background to a lighter color.
This is the second of the series I’m working on with these white hydrangea.
This is the first in a series. I’ve already done 2 more…and hope to do many more…but we’ll see. May try it indoors as well.
This was a second version of yesterday’s piece. I think I used only natural light for this one and a square format. Which one do you prefer?
PS: I lived through the operation. It hurts, but it’ll get better.
