Today's exploration of still life.

Still Life with Olives

9x12 on Linen Canvas


I spent 4 hours exploring this little still life.   That is just the time spent actually painting.

Finding the objects and setting up the design and lighting took much longer.  I started yesterday gathering items.  And it wasn't until this morning that it all came together for me.

It was fun to paint an apricot and adding the olives as an afterthought as an interesting combination.

I am aiming for looser brush strokes and simplified shapes as I continue with more explorations.
