5 x 7 in.
I thought I'd try a still life of tomatoes today. My struggle has always been to use color in imaginative ways to describe the shadows and planes of objects. I tend to stick to local color, the color that I actually see, and that doesn't always make an interesting painting. I'm trying to step outside my box and see what happens. Looking at this finished painting, I can see that I need to go bold.
I'm an fine art artist in Raleigh, North Carolina. I need a paintbrush in my hand to feel complete and I invite you to follow me on my art journey. Everyday brings new ideas and projects... there simply is not enough time... On December 1, 2012, I joined the community of artists who paint a painting each and every day. I haven't been able to keep up with the daily painting, but I'm trying hard to keep my paintbrushes busy.
