When you live in it you might as well paint it.... ugh... ;)

Colored Corn

14 x 10 inches on Arches HP 140lb. Transparent W&N paints.

Tried to break away a bit from my usual tight work.

Comments and Critiques welcome... but I've signed it now so probably won't change it... sick of looking at it.. :rolleyes:

Thanks,

chooky :D:D

Edit by me... I can see I've cropped the right hand side too close to the corn.. the actual painting goes out another quarter inch. whoops.. :(

It's a very dramatic painting.
Excellent work!!!

A little phallic, too.

Yea! Needs a butt icon, Chooks.
Looks good, nice and loose, just like I like 'um.
In a year you will be painting cotton.

needs a few hits of dark value

LOL.. never thought corn would need a butt icon Auntie.. ;) Oh and sorry if this sounds daft but what do you mean painting cotton by next year.. as in crop of cotton??? duh.. just wondering..might be an art term I don't know about yet.. :)

That is what Redsy was referring to I believe... ;)

Really interesting painting, love the perspective, great subject, here's a cheer for the Midwest (myself Iowa believe me plenty of corn) ah those days of detasseling that @#@* corn. Good way to earn extra money in those days.

Seriously, love the colors and the rendition.

Great Job!
