6" x 12" - Oil on Panel
My intentions were good today. Since I had to work all day yesterday and didn't get a chance to paint, I thought that I would get myself all caught up this afternoon. NOT!
I figured this subject would be a piece of cake. I have painted persimmons before and I have painted bags before, but I have never painted brown bags!!! Who knew that it would give me such a challenge!!! First I fought with getting the colour of the bag. I know that the problem there was the fact that I had toned my panel with transparent orange and it was greatly skewing what I thought I saw! On my palette it appeared to have quite a warm cast leaning toward yellow tones, but once I put it down on the panel, it looked very different! It appeared grey and cool. I persevered though and as I got more of the bag completed the colour appeared more true. Of course that was not the only problem. I kept losing the shape of my creases and ending up having to re-draw them about three times. That little dark space between the persimmons was crazy to see with overlaps here there and everywhere!
But, it's done!!! I don't know about the colour of the bag. I will re-recheck it again in the morning when I have good light. I may end up adjusting it.
As for 19 and 20, I will attempt to get them done tomorrow!
