"Pigment Load"



Setup another still life and struggled around the little ones bringing home colds from school to get it painted.

I initially wanted to think of this as some kind of old alchemy scene, but it looked more and more to me like some kind of paint-making setup, with powdered pigments and different jars of oils.

I need to get out a better camera to get a better pic of it, but that can wait til it dries.

12"x16" oil on Panel, painted directly from life.

Re: "Pigment Load"

Looks like a great painting. Can you crop it and get rid of that really distracting pegboard? Would love to see it larger. Do you have photo edit software? I can do it for you if you like.

Yes? it is great painting. I love how you paint an extra piece of paper with filler powder on it!

Re: "Pigment Load"

Must be Cobalt Teal PB28 versus a pile of PY3.

Great painting though, I love the various still life elements, each is interesting in it's own right. Fully admit to having a soft spot for glass objects... even though I find them getting shattered in my house far more often than I would like.

Re: "Pigment Load"

Thank you for the comments everyone!

Also, I really need to find a way to photograph this one better using my wife's photog stuff. It comes across a bit "bright" than it really is, but I guess that's just nature of taking pics of dark paintings like that.
