This is a painting I did recently using Mark's method. Normally, I use very tight brushstrokes. I had a lot of fun with this one but know there is lots of room for improvement. I set up this still life and used a photo to paint from. Unfortunately, it has a garish blue background, so I changed it to more of a bluish gray color. The reflection in the bottom of the bowl I think may be too dark. More contrast needed on the pears might fix that (?) and probably need more work on the fabric drape also. Ellipse is off on the right side of the bowl. Any other critique would be very welcome. Did this on an 8 x 10 inch canvas board.
