click on the image to see the texture....
here's one of the two paintings done at the jerrys artarama demonstration. i had to work on a few shapes later back in the studio because working that quick while youre talking is bound to make some parts of the painting off. but thats the beauty of oils, you can scrape down the parts you dont like and lay it back in the way you want it.
laying in bigger paintings with the knife just requires larger knives and way more paint. i think i made some improvements on this one from the small study for this. i put a little more color and detail in the food since i had lotsa room on this larger canvas. i also put a little more variation in the background to just to liven it up.
