7"x5" acrylic on masonite
Boy. I didn't think this would be as challenging as it was. I spent more time than I would have liked on this one, but I enjoyed myself. I found this copper pot at a garage sale this spring and I have been wanting to paint it ever since. I didn't really know what to compose it with so I just grabbed whatever I could find, and got right to it.
I was a bit concerned that the placement of the egg was too close to the center. I decided to forget about it and keep painting. After putting in the colors, it didn't bother me as much. What do you think?
Overall, I am very happy with this one.
I enjoy the egg where it is. I think you're right: the other parts all make it work. Copper is interesting, eh? I haven't painted it much but it's fascinating when you sit down and actually look at the colours you're seeing. And killer drapery!
Thanks Kim! Copper is amazing and so much fun to paint! This is the first copper painting I have ever done and it was so much fun!ReplyDelete
