My first ever oil pastel work.  Lesson learned: use a sheet of paper to rest my hand  to avoid smudging  the background.

This is a study in negative painting in analogous mixes, using tools other than just watercolor brushes to obtain the clear detail of the stems.

The color combination was created by Esperoart as posted in PMP from a photo by Diane Mowery, also posted in PMP.
Bodegones in Gouache October 04, 2016, 12:06:40 PM 108 1
I just discovered the forgiving properties of Gouache, this medium allows me to go back and repair mistakes after the painting is done.  I am thankful for little favors.

This little gal is my attempt to paint white porcelain... not an easy task.  I should have painted it reflecting the surrounding color.... maybe I will get more adept on my next try.

This still life painting is the  third subject of my Chinese Trilogy.  I think my efforts at composition are getting more acceptable.

My sister gave me this beautiful porcelain figurine as a Birthday gift more than 40 years ago.  I thought it would make a lovely still life subject.  The only thing I could not replicate was the ethnic features of the original; my rendition of her face turned out attractive, but not entirely oriental .

Still trying to learn how to use pastels.  My biggest challenge is keeping the background clean.
