Vase and Oranges
This little study was an experiment. I saw a challenge on the DPW website to paint a color painting of a black and white photo. There was a black and white photo in one of my art books, so I thought I'd try to paint it in color.
The background color is a big mistake. I premixed colors and I thought they looked good on the palette, but I don't like them in the painting.
Claudia Hammer had a funny post of a painting she wasn't happy with. She said that people would point and laugh at it. Claudia is a terrific artist, so her idea of a failure is at a lot higher level than mine. So please, no pointing and laughing. If you must snicker, please cover your mouth.
