This was done to sample a new color. I used Carbazole Violet and red, Carbozole violet and blue, Carbolozle violet and duocrome cactus flower, yellow and a touch of blue on the candle. Also I used neutral for shadows.

Does anyone have problems with paint oozing out of the tube too fast on hot days?

Hi Syl......I like this, especially the new colors....... being a bit picky I do wish the spout of the candle stand was a tiny bit above the background line.......
O and I like the goldish color on the candle holder......al

I like the loose but definitive light and dark thrown across the tabletop.

Thanks to all who looked and commented. I used a flat brush for the background and a mop for the table.

Al I see what you mean. I also notice that the table and background are even in height. I should have had lowered the table some.

Tag the day I painted this it was 90 degrees F. It was a record for my neck of the woods. Today its back to the 60's ....

Yep on the paint being rather "Moulton" on hot days for me too (Last Wednesday and Thurs) I hate putting the caps back on till I get the edges of the tube lip wiped off and dried. as well as the caps, so I stand them up in those little film canisters till it dries and then the caps don't get stuck on. I suppose this sounds a little anal!!!!:cat: :o Oh well, Hate stuck on paint caps

I wanted to say your painting is very nice, The way you did the backdrop with the wide brush very loose. I hope you can fix the line of the table, or you might be able to do another . Good job
