Hello everyone, I hope your week is going well and your New Years Eve plans are underway if you are celebrating. Here are paintings 25 and 26:
#25 “Brie and Blueberries”, oil on birch panel, 4″x4″
Here is a simple piece with cheese and blueberries. I like the contrast in textures of the dusty cheese and the glossy blueberries. I tried to be looser and tried not to overwork it too much.
#26 “Bread”, oil on birch panel, 4″x4″
I wanted to try something different in this painting. So I incorporated different effects of painting genres within an individual painting. For example, I used realistic rendering of the subject juxtaposed with graphic design elements in the background. Again, I tried to be loose in this painting and used a flat brush to achieve the flat “stripes” and soft transition of the background. I am pleased with the way it turned out.
This week is the last stretch for me, only four more paintings to go!
Until the next post,
