The orange challenge

A little while ago Leanne Cole posted a wondrous inspiration piece about artist Antonio Lopez Garcia. These oranges are not going to have the quality of Antonio’s but inspiration can be passed along. I thought I would do what another Leanne – Leanne Thomas – was doing in showing some of her works in progress. Her work includes really beautiful still life pieces.

This is the start of an exercise in seeing and illuminating – taking a bit more time and keeping the colours cleaner – as Marco has been patiently beating my bad painting and lazy observation habits out of me. All tricky stuff to a slow learner.

It’s all good for the brain and I’m keen to keep going in this direction and get some more confidence to work in this way. Will take this acrylic on paper exercise to repeat in oil on canvas soon I hope.
