Still Life, Roses and Reflections: Day 9

Today’s painting was the hardest so far, for two reasons. I had to paint ellipses with complex parts, and my shoulder really hurts. Precision in painting comes at a cost of sometimes maintaining stress positions, and lately I’ve been getting

Still Life, Roses and Reflections: Day 8

Still Life, Roses and Reflections: Day 5

Today’s painting was an attempt to finish the leaves, after a morning spent on a commission project. I had about five hours left in the afternoon, so I used those, adding the green leaves, smoothing out a few painting errors
