White Cabage Rose


8" x 10" Oil on Panel

I set this still life up in the Pumfrey's oil class at the Beach Art Center.  The past couple of weeks
I have been painting on canvas, but the texture of the canvas make the brush drag
and I don't get those loose impressionist strokes.  The gesso panels
are wonderful, they let you lay down one stroke and the brush hairs show.  I use
a soft synthetic flat brush.  The small detail is done with a small
round synthetic brush.
