Painting Karen W


Hi Matt,

I hope you are well. Latest still life. 9 x 12 Oil on Panel. Original photo. On this one I did a raw umber underpainting of all the darks to see how that felt. I was glad to solve many problems that way in advance, I had to alter a few things to get rid of two tangents and I decided to not add the bud on the leaf. I wanted the leaf to feel fragile lying there by itself. I feel OK about the modeling but I know it can use a tweak or two. I tried to add some texture by using a dry brush with just a bit of paint on it for the spots on the pear. Perhaps on the pear I could of used a bigger brush. Getting into the nitty gritty of what I want my brush strokes to look like. I also did a color study and that helped alot. Thanks for all of your support! Appreciate it!
