"A painter's tastes must grow out of what so obsesses him in life that he never has to ask himself what it is suitable for him to do in art." -Lucien Freud
Have glazed pthalo blue & green apatite genuine onto the background. Using these cool colors has really made the fruit and bowl come foreward without losing that tropical feeling I wanted. Continuing to build up the values on the fruit and bowl and starting to develop the lace. So close to being done....time to study the piece and decide where values need to be deepened, highlights lifted, etc.
This painting will be included in the upcoming "Library Show" January & February 2010.
Have a great day, Laura Leeder
