Painting Karen W


Hi Matt, I hope you are doing great! This is a little still life from my photo, 9 x 12 oil. I decided to change the background from the reference and was mainly focusing on values. I was very motivated to express these fall colors as these apples and pomegranates are from my garden. I worked on losing the edges that I felt was important to the painting but would love your feedback. I actually used a very lite wash of Alizarin Crimson as a tone on the canvas before I started to paint. I was very happy with that as it gave the painting a nice glow. I think the issue of edges is the key, thank you for your critique and feedback, really appreciate it! Oh, and this is the darkest background I have ever done, scary but wanted to try it…..Thanks!!
