8x8 oil on panel
Alla Prima. This was fun to paint, I kept it painterly and tried to avoid overworking. I painted the background black to make the colors pop but I'm not sure how I feel about the finished piece. I think I will try this again with a light background.
Black sure is hard to photograph!
I am gearing up for some pastel work. I've printed my reference photos and plan to start with small studies before I take out the big sheets. We'll see how it goes.
