Well...since the apricot came about so quickly...I felt like a bit more painting tonight.

Sun was out, but no time really after school to do anything 'cept envy anyone else that got out today to paint!

I had this little candle I brought to school and tucked it back in my setup...

5"x 7" oil on Hansen panel...

I started this first by turp'ing in some darks, letting sit a few minutes then somewhat rubbing off and in. It was immediately ready then to start painting...

so...I feel like all in all then, today was a good productive day both for my students and myself.

Now I need to take a moment to stretch my legs...

Larry, I really like your background color on this one. Flames are not easy to paint, and this one is very well done. Nice glow on the background from the flame.

You do know your setup box isn't fireproof, right? :D Would you like to borrow Sparky, just in case?

hahha...thanks Jamie...

If it started on fire...I'd have to paint really fast to capture the moment, making the indoor subject more and more like the elusive light of a plein air!! :D

thanks for sharing Sparky though, he may yet come in handy!

You guys are funny.

Your candle is animated Larry. That flame is really burning. Nice job.
