"Persimmons and Periwinkle"
20 x 16 inches, oil on canvas
I've been working hard and loving it. The only downside of working on larger, multi-day paintings is that I miss my small still lives (and my #2 round brushes). I still have my preparatory sketches, though! Here's the sketch for this piece:
"Persimmons and Periwinkle (sketch)"
10 x 8 inches, oil on canvas
As you can see, the blue-on-white patterns look a little more polished on the larger canvas. Sketching them wet-on-wet is fun, but if you have the patience to paint the fabric and let it dry a day or two, patterns go on quite a bit more smoothly!
