Oil on Board 6″x6″
Here’s a little lesson learned. Don’t try to photograph your painting whilst it’s still wet …. it doesn’t work very well. I think I’ve just about go this photo but as soon as it’s fully dry, I’ll post another photo.
This was really difficult to paint, but I’m glad I persevered as I think it’s just about turned out okay. It is a little bit lighter than shown in the top photo – a better view of the colours is in the second.
I’ve used mainly cadmium red, cadmium yellow and ultramarine blue in this painting and I think that’s why it all hangs well together. Even the shadow is a mix of all three. I work with a limited palette so that’s something to share with you on another post together with some details of who is inspiring me to paint more regularly!
