Oil on Raymar Panel, 9×12″ (larger)
I’ve been working on this painting in dribs and drabs between being sick and plein air painting all day Sunday and Monday. This poor melon wasn’t going to hang in there much longer and I’m back to work tomorrow. So tonight I gave myself an hour to finish it and I’ve called it done. It’s not great but it (and I) had a few nice moments in the process.
Now I have clean up and get ready for the work week. Next time I’ll post the great stuff I learned in class this weekend, including a color study I did today and a cheat sheet/checklist I’ve made for myself to follow while I prepare for and execute (a weird word) a painting. But not tonight because I’m off for a good night’s sleep for a change!
