Five Wine Bottles 3

11x14 oil on gessoed Masonite

Paint quickly on red under-painting

I can now say I like painting on Masonite or gessobord better than canvas panel or stretched canvas. I also like the look and I feel like I use less paint.

Five Wine Bottles 2

 16x20 oil on gallery wrap

I would like to begin sharing the most significant thing I chose to work on with the particular piece or the most significant thing I learned from the experience as I blog from now on.

In this piece I concentrated on warm and cool colors.  It's basically a blue and green painting so it needed a variation of shades.  I tried to put warm and cool close within small and large masses.  I also used the palette knife on parts of this painting.
