"Up Periscope"

6x6", oil on canvas boardv

This was fun to paint. It went pretty quicky and came out loose. It was fun to mix the highlit and shadowed versions of the gourd color.

If you watch this blog, you probably know that I love shadows. I even remember deciding that, at least for the painter, the shadow should be considered an object. For the viewer, not so much. We'll still automatically try to arrange the 3D objects in similar groups. So I tend to use an odd number of 3D objects and consider the shadow a different kind of object I have to paint. (Of course, the odd number I've been using recently is "one.")
