In Progress for July 1




I worked hard all weekend because I plan on taking a few days off this week. This is the first pass of a larger piece; 20x48... still a whole lot to do. It was painted using a slightly expanded version of the small palette I discussed last week (I added Cadmium Red, Yellow Ochre, and Ivory Black). For the purposes of making an underpainting, I think it worked just fine.

Oh - the pieces of fruit are sitting on a piece of wood that I distressed myself, mostly by beating it with a chain. I guess I shouldn't be surprised at how many YouTube videos there are where people demonstrate beating wood with a chain...
