A commission for a Ginger Jar. This was a bit of a challenge because of the detailed design on the jar. But I found a brush, Silver Bristlon Round 0 that worked perfectly with fine details. My main objective in this painting was to created feeling of roundness, protruding out of the canvas.
During these times in quarantine, I found these paintings done in 2015. They are now on sale for $45 each on Etsy. These are small paintings varying from 5 x 7 to 6 x 8 inches oil on canvas panels. There’s even a square painting at 6 x 6 inches. Great for the kitchen decor.
Bell Peppers and Carrots, 6 x 8 in. oil on canvas panel
China Bowls with Cherries, 6 x 6 in. oil on canvas panel
Fallen Iris, 5 x 7 in. oil on canvas panel
Grapes, 5 x 7 in. oil on canvas panel
Strawberries and Blueberries, 6 x 8 in. oil on canvas panel
I love painting from the top view. I found that slicing up the fruits have very interesting textures. Especially grapefruits, oranges, lemons and avocados. Their symmetrical and circular shapes make interesting compositions.
