Lemon on dark testing

 




oil on cardbox

the lemon was done on a very dark ground as I just applied it on the isolation.
The grey was just working some white over while the dark. was not fully dry.
.The imprimatura on top sits, and works just as well, The white is an alkyd based I make myself. No doubt anymore for me about a dark ground.
(will try and make a better photo by daylight)

It was an experiment with a heavy coat of standoil and black and therefore it caused cracking. however it will stay like this. There is something interesting about this accidential compostion - - -

Lemon with a strawberry







Oil on cardbox
Late evening practice, had to limit the time, going to work next day, maybe in a way was good, think it took one to two hours with adding more this afternoon.
Btw the lemon is organnical grown, so waxy with just a weak hightlight, maybe got it stronger here than is is.

Antique Glass Mini Study

 



8x9 cm oil
Do a little and do it the best or what ever you can, have been my strategi to get back on track or keep going, while having a job to see to and takes a good amount of energy.
And it could be added get the most with the least effort.
The little piece of card here was an experiment with texture and a toning which was a grey over white.

 One more on the way

Hellerup Strand, Maj Aften


 18x20 cm, oil Hellerup Strand Maj Aften (evening)

Have been missing to make a landscape and something with summer, I took this photo 2018 by the end of may and remember it to be one the first summerdays. I have been hesitating and in doubt I could do it. So with all the time renewed revised materials and techniques I thought I give it a go. And it was quite a challenge and a lot of work. A photo always skews the values, especially with a contrasty scene as this (darks are too dark and light is too light) so it took a lot of  tweeking to make it work.
