1860 Limey Gathering
5" x 7" 13 x 18 cm oil on panel, available
Number two small painting, these small ones help me get back into the flow and don't take too much time, I have a larger one ready to be finished today.
I primed the boards with black gesso and sanded them smooth, which was a mistake as the paint slid right off it! I had to paint several layers just to get a bit of 'tooth' on the panel and cover the black, I made the back ground a very dark green to complement the fruit.
