Day 3

Day Three of the 30 day painting challenge. I thought this would be a simpler arrangement but ended up working for six hours. In fact as evening came I didn’t know if I would finish in one day. I started feeling really tired, standing all day. This forced me to make faster observations and decisions about brush work and colors. Two bananas on a blue Dutch cloth. I have a good friend who was born in Holland and she gave me this cloth to wrap a loaf of bread. It was a souvenir from a visit back to Holland. I enjoyed the color play of the blue against yellow bananas. oil painting 8x10 on linen
Here is a photo of my painting set up, I made a still life box and lighting arrangement.
