Oil on Hardboard
This red onion with it's outer skin peeling away just captured my eye. As I got down to painting I started noticing all of the variety of colors it had. I loved the gray/blues.
It's now official. I have set up a web-site gallery to feature my art and I have secured my domain name. karlauphoff.com. I hope you will take a peek and give me your feed-back!
For my artist friends:
I photographed this outside. Trying to capture it on the wall was proving to be frustrating as I was struggling with reflected light. Finally I just laid it on a card table and shot it. This worked really well. By using outside light I was able to raise the resolution by 3 times what I can get indoors.
Also, Julia Lundman has a very concise article about the different approaches to drawing that is worth reading. You can read it HERE>
|Here is how it might look framed.|
