Beware! Nothing is safe from a daily painter. Anything left on the stove or counter top is fair game.
I have been reading about Van Gogh this weekend. I love his bold outlines and intimate compositions. This layout reminds me of his still lifes.
I am guessing this was about 20 minutes into the painting.
It was late in the day and the light was fading fast in the kitchen. I needed to try a practice painting as a fast sketch. I did this in 1 hour. I have been reading Craig Nelson's book (60 Minutes to Better Painting). I highly recommend it to every daily painter and those who want to learn how to improve in quick steps. Craig Nelson shows a very practical approach to a quick painting process. I have taken this book out of the library so many times I can see my fingerprints. I even recognize stains from spagetti sauce I splattered from lunch one day. Maybe I should get a book on how to eat neatly in 60 minutes.
