Re-Do Butterscotches, 6x6 Po;
When I got into the studio today I couldn't BELIEVE how much I hated yesterday's post of the butterscotch candies in my mother's candy dish. I wiped it right off and that's something I rarely do. I changed the format, to a 6x6 (yes, today I remembered my Gessoboards!), changed the viewpoint ( a little), the color of the background became light blue when I put a piece of blue tissue paper over the white ground. This time I didn't worry at all about the dark side of the yellow wrapper or the twisted ends of the cellophane. I believe (and I was on autopilot when I did this, so I can't say for sure) I made the yellow cooler and darker. So! I also attempted to paint the calla lilies again, too and I'm not happy with it, so I'll put it on the Studio Blog just to show you.

I really like the blue background and the new point of view on this painting.ReplyDelete
this one's much better. Try it with something lavender to offset the gold of the wrappers. A very complicated subject. Well done.
Lavender would have been great -r a neutral with lavender undertones. I always love blue and yellow together, though. I think I'm not touching this subject for a while!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Carol - it's a process, you know?ReplyDelete
I liked the previous one, but I like this even better. Very nice!ReplyDelete
I didn't mind yesterday's rendition at all but I really like the way the butterscotch came out in this one. What a tough subject, but you really pulled it off.ReplyDelete
I also like this one better.......the way you did the cellophane on both are quite fantastic. The shadow on the earlier one was the only part that distracted me a bit.ReplyDelete
Bindu, Kerry and Patty, thanks so much - you know it's kind of fun doing stuff like the cellophane, things I think at first "I can't paint that", but then you just go and do it!ReplyDelete
Even though I liked the other painting I do like this one better.ReplyDelete
Wow, excellent job. The ellipses look perfect.ReplyDelete
