here is the start of a still life commission I'm working on this week. I really enjoy staying loose, putting the gesture in drawing-wise, then using warm colors for shapes in the light and cooler colors for the shadow shapes. for one with real life commitment issues this style of start really suits me!
i'll go back and put the real color in when its tacked up some. then you'll see that I have a pool ball, stick of cotton, fast food cup, matchbook, playing care and a that shape behind the cup will be a fur stole. now that'll be a challenge. never painted fur before. i'll do what I always do. Squint and paint what I see!
