Fig and half

8''x8'', oil on gessoboard - SOLD

I tried something different – painting on a prepared dark background.  It has a different effect  and I will try it a few more times to see how it goes.

I’m a bit tired today having stayed up far too late watching a recording of The Killing – series 2 – brilliant stuff and what a jumper!  My Danish is coming on a treat.

      Well what I mean is that I painted an all-over dark ground – burnt umber/french ultramarine, let it dry and painted onto that so it’s a little like mezzotint, working up the light tones.
