Study with chinese bowl, red

Another chinese bowl study today. This time with yesterday's colors reversed (ie red and green). Maybe the colors in the final version will be a bit more pastel-like (softer). Tried soft synthetic brushes again today. This works quite well, with Pro-Art's gesso for a primer. Pro-Art is a local art store in Nijmegen (holland) where they sell a home made gesso based on acrylic resin and I believe pva glue. The gesso is rather porous compared to other ones.

Study with chinese bowl, red, 15x14 cm, oil on masonite.

Lovely colours. One seems to be able to touch the bowl - the material is so "there"!

Sweetness of a composition. The green and red are fighting for attention.
