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.
