Oil on 5x7 hardboard.
This is my contribution to the DPW Challenge.
This week's challenge was posted by Carol Marine. Carol wrote: "Often when we are trying to render a subject, we SEE one thing but our BRAIN tells us something different. And too often we trust our brains when we shouldn’t, and our art ends up looking awkward. There are several “tricks” for getting past what our brain is telling us. Chief among these is SQUINTING! But another way to practice is painting upside down.
So, this week, I challenge you to paint this still life, upside down, from start to finish! I tried to pick a subject that would be compelling enough, simple in parts, but also fairly complicated."
I have used this great method in a limited way in the past. So this challenge was challenging indeed and very instructive.
I also invested a little more time to achieve a more developed painting.
Happy Summer Everyone!!
