Following on from my last post - here is the mid layer of my Olive painting...
I quite liked it at this stage and was tempted to leave it right here!
But no - I mean, there are black olives and green olives... but whoever heard of a grey olive???
So, I have of course added colour and the next version you see will be the final one - and I'm glad I didn't leave it like this - it's far too boring! :0)
The apple is almost finished now too.
It was so much more complex even without the liquid in the glass, thanks to all those wonderful markings on the skin. But I've finished the actual apple its self now. I just need to work a little more on the glass.
As soon as that's done I can finally post it :0)
Meanwhile, I have completed the charcoal, tonal drawing of bear 7, which I'll also share with you soon.
I'm really happy with it - It gives me a really good idea of how I want my final painting to look!
So, watch this space - there is lots to come! :0)
