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.
