Painting No. 108 - Apple Bowl IV (study)

6" x 4" - Oil on Canvas Board
NFS

I recently donated a painting to a silent auction and used a larger size canvas than what I typically work with. Before starting the 20" x 16" I needed to get a plan for exactly how I wanted to paint it. So I painted this.

This one is a small (6" x 4") study for the larger work. I was focused on nothing but the basic blocks of color, composition and how it all felt once the colors were together. It's alright I guess but the real value was in making some mistakes here and clearing things up before I did the "real" one.

I'll post the bigger version this weekend so you can see the before /after views. Plus there is some really fun stuff to post next week.
