Sushi In Soy

Close ups

Oil on 5x7 gessoed hardboard.
Sushi sitting in a pool of soy sauce. This is yet another offering to Karin Jurick's DSFDF. Never ate it...never painted it...heck, I never even saw it in person! I know. I need to get out more, don't I? I let intuition be my guide for this...so if ya don't like it, don't blame me..blame that danged ol' intuition. I had to do the background a couple of times.

  1. OMG! You and Gwen Bell need to be spanked for excelling in this challenge. Mere mortals like myself are very intimidated by this awesome work you know....

  24. I like this very much. Richly done color. Soft atmosphere.
    Nice to see the closeup, but I hope you don't think I stole the idea. I did mine as a close crop before checking the others on Karin's site.
    Happy painting!

  36. Thanks for posting the closeups. It's interesting how my first impression was that you painted every grain of rice, yet I see that you didn't... I love that effect. I imagine the texture in person is very pleasing to the eye.
