'Camillia' by Linda Hunt floral original painting

In this painting I wanted a deeper space and set the still life back with an exspanse of foreground. I worked the color to intensify the foreground enough to hold the weight of the background. Loved working with these wide open flowers...such a pleasure. 8X8 oil canvas panel

Lemon Stacks still life by Linda Hunt

Playing around with my new color blocks and my lemons. Great fun!

Color Blocks

This has been my project for this week. I bought these old playskool blocks on Etsy a couple of weeks ago and today painted them in primary and secondary colors. I am using them to paint from. Many months ago I bought the DVD Painting Light: The Cape School Method by Camille Przewodek and she suggested making a set of colored blocks to use as studies.I like the way that she uses color as light. I paid $11.00 for the blocks and had the paint. I am excited to begin working from them. I looked for a long time before I found the blocks and price I wanted.

'Ruby Red and Ranunculus' by Linda Hunt still life

It felt good to be in the studio painting today. My lemons are holding up fine and I am beginning to love to paint yellow. Who would have guessed.

Pepsi and Lemons still life abstract by Linda Hunt

In this painting I once again used the lemons and paired them with some vintage glasses. Love this vintage glassware from the 1940's. To stretch the value range I used pepsi for my darkest value. I had a lot of fun with this painting and I am very happy with it. I really had to work a long time getting the composition down. I seem to spend more time setting up a still life than actually painting it. :)
