more on the commission...

I painted till late last night and all day today.
Slowly building my colors, wash over wash.
It seems like I should be able to go right to
the color I want but I think that is what makes
my work so different.  My under washes glow
through the top washes giving a depth you cannot
get any other way.  With experience and lots of
practice I know what colors to mix to build up the
values I want.

More layers of wash, totally dry between layers.
I am adding the texture to the shelves.

Deepening the shadows in the corner, and
making the apples look real!
Had to stop for track and a quick run
to Esbenshades Greenhouse, Linda wanted to
"look around" at the new plants.
Back to painting tonight.
