|Onion Study/ oil on board/ 4"x 4"/ available at Low Country Gallery )(HH)|
Today, I am painting in oils after my trip. My first painting was a "wipe". This little study is better. I love the colors. I disrupted the surface by scratching again. Julie Ford Oliver mentioned that Charles Mundy uses scratching on his paintings, so I will look his work up sometime this week, when the dust settles. I am continuing to experiment with fracturing and struggle with taking too much paint off. Again, Julie Ford Oliver suggested a lighter touch in a comment she made to the blood oranges painting, so that will be what I think about next time.
