The Bean Jar
8 x 10
oil on canvas panel
This week's challenge is inspired by my recognized weaknesses in the larger painting that I did these past couple of weeks. I want to understand how to keep a background from becoming flat, maintaining depth and interest, while at the same time improve my building the form in the objects of the still life.
In order to make myself not immediately get uptight and perfectionistic, I'm declaring all of them sketches. I even started with a 3 value sketch in paint before moving to color.
