|My Acrylic Table With IPod|
Still life is not my favorite genre--actually, far from it. Yet I chose to do one to get the drift of alla prima, painting from life. I staged no set up. I painted my acrylic paint table just the way it is,in need of straightening. The spread of brushes and paint jars was too ambitious for a first attempt, but I kept painting till I ran off the 9 x 12 canvas. I let the composition be whatever it turned out to be. I did no predrawing--even with an oil wash. I just painted patches of color. This is the result.
