|Plums and Pitcher|
8 X 10
Oil on hardboard
I was inspired by Richard Schmid when I painted this. I used a bristle brush in the background to give a looser effect. I don't know that I will go to the extent of loose scribbles as he does, but I do like the different texture in contrast to the main items in the painting. Today I read about color harmony. This has been something that I have been wondering about lately. Schmid basically says that the light will provide the color harmony and you just need to paint what you see accurately. Very interesting.
