"Peach with Cherries and Grapes" Oil on 6x6 board




I wanted to change the angle of my set up, so I set this fruit up on a lower table, and stood to paint.  ( I usually sit).  I noticed that when I stand, my palette is further away, and my arm isn't as steady when I reach for it, and I use more paint to mix with.  It's much more comfortable to sit, but standing seems to cause my painting to come out with a looser look.  Which is the effect I want.  And, standing can only burn more calories than sitting, so that's an extra bonus.  :-)

  1. Love the kaleidoscope of colors! Beautiful job! I think I always sit when I paint. Except when I can't see something well and need to get a bit closer for a look...
