First painting for 2009. Our house was in chaos most of the day with the taking down of the Christmas decorations. Not having a studio makes it hard to find a place to work. It was late when I set up this little still life, but I wanted to give the oil pastels another try.
This time I used a 6"x 8" Masonite panel that was primed with gesso. I used a #4 filbert with some odorless Turpenoid to do some blending. I liked working on the panel because it has a smoother surface.
