"Reflections" 18x14 oil on linen panel
What a pleasure it was doing this painting.  Using a medium I first darkened the entire canvas using Galkyd Lite mixed with a combination of darker value paints. Using a palette knife, I drew the objects. After bringing the painting to stage two, I looked at it carefully for a couple of days before going in and bringing it thru stage three. I must say I had a blast doing the pitcher and the reflections both on the pitcher itself and the reflections on the table. The secret to the table having that translucent look is using light coats of of the paint mixed with the Galkyd Lite and using the mop brushes. Really love the effect! Also I used complementaries (reddish stuff and greenish stuff) for the background and the table which seem to work nicely together. This painting was done with Michael Harding paints and Cw Mundy Mops. Expensive but awesome to work with. All in all I'm very satisfied with this one!!!
