White painting #5
I am enjoying painting white paintings. There is something very rewarding about just dealing with value and stretching myself to explore other elements of good picture making. I bought a box of 20X20 inch canvases and am loving painting on them. This size permits me to lavish my brushwork with extra care and precision. I plan on exploring more with white paintings until I feel like exploring color once again.
There was a great deal of glass in this still life painting. I found the glass flower in the lower right hand corner in a thrift shop and it was instant 'love at first sight'. The cloth in the painting is a piece of filmy white sheer fabric with white ribbon like stripes running throughout. I simply love transparency and reflection.
It was very rewarding to challenge myself to capture the essence of these elements.
