|"Copper and Garlic"|
approx 5 ½ X 10
Oil on Hardboard
Enjoyed painting this today. The warm colors of the copper juxtaposed with the cooler colors in the garlic makes this interesting I think. Unfortunately the picture doesn't tell the whole story with brushstrokes and colors. This started out as an 8 x 10 but it just lacked any punch. Cropping it down made me like it a lot more. So once the paint is dry I will be re-sizing it.
I am reading a used book I found on eBay called "Problem Solving for Oil Painters" by Gregg Kreutz. It is well written with lots and lots of examples. Some things are things I have learned elsewhere, but there are also new ideas (for me) that I had not heard before. Very inspiring.
