Here is my latest still life, a full painting (not a sketch or study like my other ones have been lately.) Don’t you want to eat that eggplant I bought 4 weeks ago when I started on this painting and the other side of it now looks like a pockled wrinkly mess? Thank goodness one side stayed relatively ok during this duration!
This is my block in for the painting. The block in took a while, but honestly probably not more than two hours from sketch to here. All the time went in to then trying to get the same colour for that eggplant, which I still think I failed to do but the way it came out is slightly more accurate anyways. I think the eggplant is my focal point (right? Right?) I even had to knock down the intensity of the orange at the end so it wouldn’t get distracting. I bet you would never guess it would come out like this from the block in 😀
Once more for posterity.
