Edit: Just updated with a photo shot outdoors. After seeing this painting posted here I’ve decided that it is not yet finished. I now see that the tablecloth needs attention. I’ll post the finished painting soon.
Hello all. This 8 x 10 oil painting is from a photo that I took a few years ago when I first discovered MC and DMP. At the time I was merely watching the videos.
This was not an easy one for me. As I said in the discussion title, it’s only my third painting. Due to the residual effects of a stroke, I actually have trouble remembering the colors I want and then once I think I’ve got it, I forget where they go! So painting is really therapeutic and I’m so grateful that I found Mark and all of you.
Thank you in advance for your comments and criticism. Please don’t try to spare my feelings. I really want to hear your honest feedback.
The second photo shows it next to the source photo.. just a quick snapshot. (Don’t judge. Lol!)
