5x5 oil on panel
I often set up my still life the night before and do a little sketching to work out my composition. My theme for the 30 in 30 was to use all the little still life items that I have collected over the years. I think I had every item I owned out on my counter or on one of my still life stages. Nothing worked, I adjusted, rearranged and still nothing worked. Was this only day 5 and I already was out of ideas?
I got up in the morning and got rid of the bowl and the plums, ate one of the peaches and started this little study. I used Michele Karahalios' technique of wiping the panel with linseed oil and things started to smooth out. I finished this in the evening and I am happy with it.
