Pomegranate Orange Study

Above a last step. 

15x20 oil on card
I took a chance with a grey toned surface in lack of a white, there are many transparent qualities in a pomegranate, that I cant get over the grey. I left it last night with some orange in the light shape and today glazed with a little tranparent warm red.
I made the setup outside and took a photo to work from.

Plum with a blue stribe

15,5x16,5 cm oil masonite
First was done alla prima about a month ago, did not hit the values on the lights of the plum so worked a little more later on. I found a new lightsource, that is a warmer daylight 5500 K than the one I had 6500, so the daylight option on the camera almost has the same temperature.

pink poppy

15x15 cm oil on canvas
had my fights with this beauty many times, the difficulty is to find a way with the endless forshortenings as the many fine petals radiates in all directions and on the same get the softnes and fragility of it. also it is pure chromatic. it was kept wrapped in paper with water so it could act as model in the vase.

I am happy with the painting here maybe the best orange I did, it stil remains somehow to adjust the paint quality, maybe it gets less glossy with more drying

Green pepper study2 with underpainting

Appr 15x18 cm oil linen Its not all finished and maybe I just let it be as is. I worked over a toned ground and made a grey tone underpainting, working with a grafite pencil into a white basecoat, that made an optical grey with the toned ground. I let that dry before moving on. And this is the next step. I did kind of the same with a portrait study recently, with the difference that with the portrait it was a line drawing and no form work, so the second step became the underpainting for the colors to follow. I was just interested in the way the whole system worked surface paint brushes to make and get the tones working.

wild field detail study

appr 12x12 cm oil canvas
I was  trying to get that straw color and to get an idea about the flowers so when it began to work I went to a little larger cropping to include some of the darker greens on top.
