Set up this still life for a study in compliments. Used a beach towel for the drapery
Painted from life. Two sessions.
16” x 12”, oils on hardboard panel.
C&Cs welcome.

Beautiful! Love the use of complementary colors, the complementaries even add to the composition, which is great and I love the little pot.
Nice thick paint with brush marks. Great color and comp. I find the eyes on the towel distracting. :rolleyes:
I like your colours very much. By chance I am using a similar palette in a painting with the theme of family I am working on at the moment. The person who requested it wanted bright, cheerful colours.
