This couple of weeks, I've sorta been in a rut and felt rather negative about things, and I realized I haven't just paint for fun in a long long time. So, as advised by some peers, here a painting of some juicy red tomatos and peppers. And YES, I finally remembered to take photos throughout the process!
***I've actually referenced a friends photo for this painting, (I WISH I ate this healthy!)
So here is a big shot out to him: "Thank you Matt Bucholz!!"
I do a lot of "wet-on-wet" initially to create more seamless and spontaneous blends of color. I've always wanted to adapt a looser style, though almost always towards the end, I go back to old habits and render the hell out of everything. Guess I gotta keep practicing!
Ta-Da!! Here is that final scan! I like this orientation much better than the vertical way. Now, it is time to go back to working on my next book. Hope you liked it. :)
