|Cold Cereal, 6" x 6", Alla Prima Oil|
Enough with Burnt Umbra! I needed to put color back on the palette. I did just that. I took a painterly break and experimented alla prima with small. Small is difficult--not the painting, but keeping the little canvas still on the easel. It needs to be propped up to clear the ledge and locked down to withstand a frisky brush stroke. Cudos to you who do this all the time.
It was delightful painting from life--even if it was Ellis' dirty dishes.
