30-Day-Painting Challenge - Day 15


"Teapot and Nectarines"
6" x 6"
oil on gessobord
$100
Half of the challenge is done! I have another to go... So far so good. I really enjoy going to my studio every day and posting to the blog. With you help, dear fellow artists, it is coming to life.

Today I wanted to focus on color. I noticed that almost nothing in the composition can come to life without gray. It just doesn't look right. Even my bright nectarines had to get a little bit of gray here and there.

I also want to share my set up. It looks very unprofessional, but it works! It is just a cardboard box with only three side left. I can rotate it anyway I want and adjust my light from any direction I can...
