It is absurd to look for perfection, by Camille Pissarro
Mr. Pissarro understood, something I need to keep in mind. Whenever I can’t seem to get the results I expect from a painting, I only need to remember his words. My goal should be to let the experience of creating art take me on a journey of learning and growing ~
Apples and Containers (8×10), an acrylic painting, was done on a gesso-prepared hard board. The textured background was created by using a painters knife. This was an interesting challenge, given that the colors were so closely aligned I had to rely on getting the values right so the elements would come front and center. I was a bit timid with my darks, but realized they were important to the overall structure of the painting. I loved painting the fabric – a beautiful piece of peach-colored linen.
The painting is much sharper in person than the image here, but I think you get the idea. Thank you for visiting ~
