Still Life on a Studio Chair

Instead of the studio table, this is a still life on a studio chair.  It's an 11x14 oil on gessoed paper.  I am in between paintings, and I used some left over paint to make this one as quickly as possible.   Painting on paper is fun: apply paint,  wipe with rag or finger,  apply paint and wipe again, etc.

I read somewhere that, when you are done, if you scrape all the paint on your palette into one pile, you might end up with an interesting gray.  I didn't use much of the ensuing gray in this oil sketch, but I discovered it's true (about the gray), and have been using the gray to start some paintings, and add a few touches in others.
