martini olives 12x9

This painting took me a few days to complete. I as pretty busy with other things this eek so I didn't really have any large chunks of time to devote to it. I had originally planned on taking several pictures of it to document the painting process. Unfortunately, after taking the initial picture of the beginning layout I misplaced my camera so all I have are a before and after with none of the hopped for in between shots.

I typically start my paintings by blocking the composition in with a warm neutral tone. In this case it's transparent red oxide mixed ith a little bit of turps.
