Blueberry Pie 8" x 10" oil on canvas
I'm very pleased with how quickly this one came out! It was successful because I gave the canvas three coats of gesso and sanded between layers. I also did a full value rendering before I started, which made things easier. Desserts are so appealing to illustrate with oil paint! I think that words like delicious and tasty can be used to describe colors and the thickness of paint since paint has such an edible quality to it anyway. Makes me hungry too. I'm going to the grocery store on an empty stomach, so I'm probably going to come back with plenty of still life objects.
