Autumn Red

"Autumn Red"
5 x 7 Oil on Gessobord

Last painting for the week...

I started this one by toning a Gessobord panel with cadmium orange pigment, letting it dry for a couple of days and then painting my subject matter over the orange.  It's a subtle different from the plain white Gessobord underneath on my other paintings.  Gives it kind of a glow.

Number 7 in my "Scratching the Surface" series started last week.

Now those apples look really good enough to eat. Definitely not a "Still" life at all! Agree with you about the glow effect! Well done, you!

Visiting as a result of joining the Sunday Blog Hop in which we are fellow linkers. Nice to meet you - will be following you and hope to see you back at mine!

My best wishes. Isobel
