Avocado I

Avocado I, 5"x7", oil on museum board, $85 starting bid


Still playing with museum board. Got out my old stand by, avocados, and did a couple of small studies. I also got my new pouchade box today, an Open Box M, 12"x16". It took while to get it, but it was worth the wait. Being able to mimic the angle of the canvas with the palette and having it closer to my face really makes a difference in being able to see the values correctly.

This museum board was lightly primed with gesso and it really helped with the absorption problem.

Bid on this painting here.
