Sunday . . . .

oil on linen on panel, 8″ x 6″

Oh, I know. I am not supposed to paint today. But what if I wanna paint anyway?

Old habits never die. I did four sketches of this flower and vinegar vase in my sketch book trying to decide on a good layout. I like every one of them. So here is another.

I used a neutral background on this painting to set off the tints in the flower. A little bit of Naples Yellow in the foreground and graded back provides a warmth and adds depth, too.

  1. I like this little still life. is that a geranium? I painted a flower in a ceramic container today too, even though I never paint on Sundays. must be something in the air.

  2. This one seems much bolder, and more confident. Love the reflections!!!
    Looks like the little voice took the day off, Eh? 🙂
