So, I left you last time with just the underpainting of my still-life. This post is a little more exciting! I have painted the artichoke!
I learned something magical in class. Namely that this very vegetable green is not made with yellow and blue oil paint, but with yellow and black! Mind-boggling I know!
Also pretty fantastic is an article I recently read for my research paper: Old Masters: Overlooked Women Artists by Joan Altabe. You should give it a read if you are interested in art.
Next time I will show you some orange on that canvas!
