Thanks! The dress probably took a couple of days on and off, the painting was started around February!

Re: Welcome to What's on Your Easel...September 2017

Trying a still life, 9"x12" on canvas paper stapled to a gatorfoam board. Working on the background first. Painted the whole canvas yellow with acrylic matte medium and fluid acrylics before beginning. Mostly because I fear what will happen with my edges between the yellow sunflowers and purple background, I feel like it gives me a margin of safety. It also turns out that it feels like a nice surface to paint on. I'm just starting to explore oil painting, probably doing some things in an unorthodox manner while I learn how to do things properly! I also very lightly drew in the outlines of the composition with colored pencil because I didn't want to use graphite or charcoal and have to spray fixative, and am not confident enough in my drawing skills (which are pretty meager) to sketch in paint. Sorry about the bad lighting in the photos. One more thing to do something about.

C&C always welcome.


C & C always much appreciated!
