Mug Shot #3, Bowl of Shrimp

The study again was quick and fluid. It helps to have another painting to get to that is the REAL painting, so this one doesn't count so much. I am seeing some improvement in the bowl issue I think.

The second painting, the mug shot, was just --- well, really fun. They are wonderful exercises for painting the head and the sitter cannot complain. The photos are execrable, and there is so much you can't see, so if you can't see it, you can't paint it, you have to consolidate the information and simplify. I can see that there are lots of things you could tweak for your own amusement.


  1. Deux toiles bien différentes et je pense que tu les a bien disposées... Ce pourrait être le bol de crevettes placé devant votre personnage...!
    J'aime la manière que tu as travaillé la fourchette.
    Gros bisous.

  2. I love Bowl of Shrimp. Great value pattern, color, everything!

  3. This Bowl of Shrimp painting is wonderful. I love the light shining through the bowl onto the table. And even the fork is a thing of beauty!
    You are one prolific lady. (And I admire anyone who can use execrable in a sentence!)
