8" x 6" - Oil on Panel
I felt like something was off with the earlier Peach Bowl paintings and decided to step back and think about the way I was approaching it. Instead of doing the Burnt Sienna underpainting, I had jumped straight to the color and so I decided to try one as a monotone. In the Richard Schmid book, Alla Prima, he talks about monotone paintings being basically drawings. So, with this version, I was basically taking some time to stop and draw the composition before moving on with the color.
