Etude with garlic and cheese.

This is an oil on canvas etude, size about 30x30 cm, some kind of preparatory work to a big still life, which one is in process of work right now.

Etude was made from nature, it took some days. Although it looks a bit unfinished, I decided to share this piece. Probably, it will be interesting not only in the context of future full size still life, but also like separate work.

All good to everybody, see you next weekend!

Still life with artichoke on the plate.

Hello my dear friends, new painting for today is "Still life with artichoke on the plate".  Oil on canvas, size is about 30x30cm.

A little bit odd, scaly form of artichokes makes them really interesting for painting. Also, it has a rich variety of shades from yellow and light green to purple and dark brown. I used lemon yellow and titan white in lights, yellow ochre and cobalt green in middle tones, and mars opaque dark in shadows.
With thin pointed brush I made a repaint to detail a petals texture, its small cracks and fissures, little bruising and roughness. I paid a lot attention to plate, its elegant blue ornament gives a picture some decorativeness. The composition balanced with three pieces of walnuts, arranged around the fruit.
And blue background board I painted in two steps. Firstly I blocked surface with cobalt deep blue using wide bristle brush, and then, after layer drying, took fine brush and detailed the oblong texture of wood.

Hello my friends! At last, spring is coming, and that's a good reason to share something bright.
This time it's my fast etude of a pear on the blue background.

To depict this pear I used a blue board background. I think saturated ultramarine tone is perfectly harmonize with delicate yellow of pear. I took attention on details, thinly drew slightly bruised sites of fruit. Built up the form with overtone, shade and reflex in it. I applied thin fluid strokes, and depict the wood texture with its thin long lines of light and dark areas.
