Oil on Linen on Panel
It has been a while since I did this - Set up a still-life. I got this cute fox and his little friend from my husband and the kids for Christmas. We all seem to like collecting things. I used to collect owls, but maybe this will be my new thing! It was interesting to try to capture the reds and pinks together. I put this black high light on the black, not because I necessarily saw it, but because I've seen it work well in other paintings! I'll have to think about whether it works here?
I also found myself paying attention to what Vadim Zanginian mentioned in his demo the other night - working from cool to warm (and back) - within the same color fields.
Now I have a little catching up to do for the 30 in 30, as my husband and I got to celebrate a belated anniversary in Santa Barbara this weekend. For those of you with kids, you might be familiar with how rare an occurrence this can be:-) We consider ourselves really fortunate to have some great friends who made it all possible. The kids had a blast as we recuperated, relaxed and walked on the beach.
