Paint Tubes

I'm quite proud of myself for knowing that less is more with this one. Once the major shapes were realized, a few subtle color shifts, shadow adjustments, and accents, took care of the rest. I really tried to be conscious of using directional brush strokes to help shape the form.

Paint Tubes, In Progress

Here's what's on the easel this evening . . .

The initial block in . . . just thinking in terms of major value relationships, mass and angles. The one tube on the left looks a little too slim, but I manage to fix it (a bit) by the next photo.

And after another hour, I've made some initial color notes . . . still need to take a cm off the length of the red tube to bring it in proportion with the other.

Well, all part of the work for tomorrow . . . I'll let it tack up and off to sleep for me!

Lemon Slice

I quite liked painting this one . . . there are a lot of subtle color and temperature shifts that take place on the skin of a lemon.
