New Still Life-WIP #2
Been laying in color. since this is essentially all white on white the value transitions are very subtle, as a result it is a painstakingly slow process. I tweaked the composition a bit by adding the broken egg shells to give the composition a little more balance. So far I have worked on this for five days including the initial drawing. I also have a second painting started as well. I have been using all hand ground pigments with the exception of cobalt violet, the rest of my palette is make up of pretty traditional colors. I am using lead white mixed with poppyseed oil because it really gives a close to pure white pigment.
