Olives


This was a much harder painting than it looks like it would be. It was difficult seeing the value changes!

i'll bet this was a difficult painting but you have done a great job on it.
Thanks so much for the kind comment on my art blog

Hmmm, looks like they are sitting in a bed of Philadelphia cream cheese.

Linda, you nailed the values. I, too, am an olive lover.

Fun subject and composition- really good job! You did great with the value changes- Good job of seeing and painting what you saw!

Well, as usual Linda you make it look effortless. I love the variation on the blue shadows, that looks very smart.

I can't imagine painting all those olives! You made it look easy. Very nice!!

Linda... I know you sketched it first, but did you paint it in values before you introduced color? Or did the sketch teach you what you needed to know?

Gorgeous. The shadows work well. I love olives, and this painting makes me want to eat one!
Beautiful colors in the previous post.
