Vanitas

Hi Everyone,

It has been a while since I have posted anything. I have enjoyed seeing lots of new work in the forum. Here is a recent one.

Vanitas: Oil on Linen, 34x16

Beautiful, I like the colors in the middle tones and in the shadows.

Thank you very much. I enjoyed painting the smoke. I tried to hold the feeling of the smoke movement as I observed it. Then I just laid it in pretty quickly without fussing with it too much. It was probably the easiest and funnest part of the picture.

Thanks so much. I am trying to consciously incorporate more color into my work. I tend to use a lot of dark backgrounds but I am trying to really be mindful of the nuanced mid tones.

Re: Vanitas

Great work Keith! Always wanted to do this theme but not ready yet... went to your site and found great work as well over there, specially "Hear, O Israel" - real gem...

All the best.

Thank you very much. Thanks also for checking out my site. I'm glad that you enjoyed "Hear O Israel." I was fortunate to go to Israel back in 05 and that painting was inspired by my trip. Particularly when we were at Masada. That place has some amazing history.


You have some great work for sure. You have certainly developed your eye and hand to nuance of transitions.
