Still life ~ Jar & Cuties



Hello there! I painted this on Monday from a set up. I took these props along to paint during Monday morning painting with my group. I thought it was pretty much finished when I brought it home but you know how it is when you get away from it and really look at it. It was rendered well but boring, first I mussed up the edges and that seemed to help but I kept looking at it and still wasn't happy with it. The next thing I did was take a palette knife to it going over the jar, lid and "Cuties". I think I am liking it now, heck I even signed it, lol. Took a close up so you could get a better look at it. This is oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas.

Please check out some of my artwork on Ebay

Enjoy your day, please stop by again
