Daily Paintings February # 33

Jug with 2 lemons # 2

I am very proud of myself... Thursday is always a very busy day.... coming home from babysitting... soon lunch... and then weekly shopping.... I was very tired but decided to do a painting even in the late afternoon.
So did a quick sketch on cardboard after lunch and started painting after shopping... It was getting dark so was hard to get the colors the way I wanted.

This painting was done as a the stroke challenge from DPW where you put down a stroke and leave it... no fiddling!!! Well I can't say I stuck to the rules 100% but there was certainly less fiddling.

I masked out an area on a dull purple acrylic toned corrugated cardboard format  27 x 20 cm it . Painted in oils with a palette knife... Photo was taken with my tablet cut off the borders. Will take a new one with all the borders. Its something different!!!

This is great Carol. Great knife work. Certainly looks like a mosaic.
