more still life

March 20, 2015


Working on another large still life. Here it is in progress.

  1. Oh my gosh I am just rolling around moaning with joy, what beautiful painting. So much deep space within this little table-top world and line COLOR form!

  2. Your paintings are so wonderfully soft! What is your process like? Do you scrape the canvas often? I just can’t get over that beautiful transition from the background into the dark shadows of the blue pot.

    • Hello Margaret and thewritingman,
      Thank you both for stopping by and for your kind comments.
      About process: I paint on birch panels mostly. Oil paint, bad brushes and linseed oil. Bad bushes because I can’t tolerate the clean up solvents that well and because I wear them out pretty fast. I go in as loose as I can to sort out where things go and to indicate values. Then I just find things I think I’d like to explore with paint and work out from the darks. I don’t scrape much, but I have been thinking a lot about what I heard David Lafalle say on a you tube video recently about not burdening the edges of form. I like that idea from so many angles and it has bee very much in my mind this last while. Thanks again . E
