smaller still lifes
A group of smaller still life paintings - part of an ongoing series.... these are all quite small, (as I tend to work on a smaller scale when painting with acrylics/gouache). I like the matt feel that combining acrylics and gouache lends to the work. My use of colour has come about through discovering five or so current favourite colours including olive green and payne's grey. Working in my sketchbooks has helped me find these colours. I am moving away from using white, black and so on and finding hues that come from looking at painting of the past.
Just thought I would share this with you to give an idea of what I have been busy with over the past few days or so.
