Green Apple and Grapes
6x6 oil on panel $125.00
This was fun to do. I have included process shots.
Sketch done the evening before. I use a golden section grid to set up my composition. I find the sketch to be the most relaxing part of the process.
Initial block in. At this point I am trying to get the general shapes and cover the whole panel which had a light wash of Transparent Earth Orange.
1st. layer. At this point I take a break and evaluate. The background needs to be cooled down and darkened. I also need to lighten the lights, darken the darks and punch up the color.
I have been playing around with blogging. I learned how to "follow" and I "unfollowed" where I had accidently followed myself. I clicked on something that said I could "manage my friends". I have a hard enough time managing myself and it said I had no friends! Next thing I will figure out is "Circles".
