8 x 10 oil on canvas board
There is a place nearby where I live called the Flower Center. Well, outside of it being a very beautiful place, there is a very old temple nearby. I’m not really sure how old it is, but it must be hundreds of years old. I went up to it and I was the only one there. The trees in the background were the hardest part, I don’t think I pulled this one off. Actually, I went there twice and the second was better, but I need to try it again one more time.
F4 Oil on Canvas, did this one in 3 1/2 hours.
Finished “A bowl of matcha”, oil on canvas. I decided to go for a not too bright blue-green background to complement the red checkered tablecloth.
“A Bowl of Matcha” – oil on canvas
Okay, I work in waves and the last 6 months my regular work has been insane. Finally picked up the brushes, here’s what I have so far.
Stage one – setting up a still life and laying it in. For this I’ve chosen to do a matcha bowl, can, and bamboo tea whisk and spoon.
I let that dry a week. No, it didn’t take a week to dry, I just couldn’t get back to it for a week. This is where I ended up after about 4 hours last night…
I’ve got to figure out what to do with that boring background, I’ll figure something out.
Spent the last week or so installing, fixing up, and overhauling this site. It is a WordPress site and the gallery’s also use a WordPress plugin. Still have a lot of work to do, let the games begin!
