Beige Pot with Oranges




8" x 10" Oil on Canvas Board

I worked on this one for a couple of days....I like working with the "Chiaroscuro Style" it's truly a big challenge to get the light traveling across the painting. My lighting is still not quite up to par....but when you live in the woods the north light is hard to find!

Hi Mary! Say, I'm seeing this "glow" around your orange in lots of other artists' paintings, too. Will you talk about that? I'd love to know the whys and wherefores... Why? I'm nosy, that's why! Thanks in advance.

Hi Mary,
Love your paintings! I just wanted to thank you for stopping by my new blog site. I'm still working on the technical aspects. I'll keep checking your work. Thanks again. Jerry Peters
