Jug & Brown Bottle

Hi, I painted this from a set up, a antique crock, little brown bottle and a twig of berries. I really liked the shadow the jug made and think that is a nice element in the painting. This is oil on a 8 X 10 stretched canvas.

This Monday with my group we are going to set up a prop and do 4 ten minute paintings and then spend the rest of the time doing a one stroke painting. I got the idea from the challenge page that Carol Marine started. I think it will be a fun challenge especially the one stroke painting, trying to lay down a stroke and leave it alone. I always say the good thing about oils is they dry slowly and you can work with them a long time and the bad thing thing about oils is they dry slowly and you can work with them a long time, lol Meaning you can over blend them and create mud. I love them though.

Check out a few of my paintings on Ebay

I am in the middle of moving my studio to another room so I have not been painting as much as I would like but I'll be back at it soon. Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Carol, I am moving to a bigger and brighter room, I think it will be much nicer. :)

You are right on all counts, Barb.
That shadow is a great element in the painting.

Those particular challenges are great to stretch painting technique.

Love oil paint!

Hi there Dean! Oils are so great, even the unexpected things that happen.
