I’m back to painting still life, fruits to be exact. Fruits were my first subject matter when I wanted to tackle oils. But getting back into them is like visiting an old friend. Besides I was requested via Etsy to paint more fruit paintings.
“Brown and Green Pears” was worked on with oils and cold wax. I was able to applied a bit of collage in the background. I hope to paint more paintings with oils and cold wax to create the translucent look.
“Chinese Whiskey Jar and Asian Pear” was painted strictly with oils but I used a palette knife towards the end. There is something expressive that happens when I use the palette knife for accents.
