Before I show the finished still life, here are the step-by-step oil painting images I shot as I went along:
And here is the finished oil painting:
“Red Wine and Bleu Cheese”, 8x10 inches, oil on canvas
Pardon the color shift in the final image, but the previous step-by-step images are only snapshots done on the fly in a mix of natural and lamp light. The final piece matches the real thing.
To see for yourself, come and look at the real thing in my solo exhibit May 11th and 12th at the Shaw Galleries! I've got this painting housed in a nice, slightly baroque-style, antique gold frame that dovetails with the feel of the painting beautifully!
Next post I'll share the photos I shot as reference for this painting, and the decisions I had to make early (and late) in the process of working her up really right!
