This is is first for me, I’m posting this painting whilst sitting on a train. I’m on my way back from London and was getting bored until I remembered my WordPress App. It might not be formatted properly but hopefully you’ll be able to see the painting which is much more important than my ramblings.
I enjoyed painting this. The bowl was tricky and I kept reminding myself to forget the bowl was green as there were quite a few reflections on it. I used ultramarine blue and burnt umber to create the dark background which is as dark as I could get it without using black.
I painted another similar scene of this subject so let me know which one you prefer and why when it’s finally posted. I’d be interested to know.
