Time has rolled around very quickly, and it is time for the big reveal for this months “Monthly Painters Challenge“.
The topic this month was “Breakfast”. The first thing I thought of was my stove top espresso maker which we use EVERYDAY! I also thought about putting my thyroid tablets in, which I also have everyday. I then thought maybe I should do my green smoothie, but I have been a bit slack about that for the last month, so my espresso maker it was.
I knew I wanted to do oils, and I started right away because I was not sure how I would go. And I wanted plenty of time to revise my plan. This is my first finished piece in OILS. AKA like a proper artist would use! :) Once it cures, if anyone reading could tell me what I should finish this with I would be very appreciative.
I love this. The background changed a few times. I did have a paler background and I fought against the red, but finally when I painted the red in last week, I loved how that looked, I should have just listened to myself to begin with.
The perspective is a little off, I think I must have had it a little off each time I painted with it in front of me, and I did attempt to fix it, and I fixed the worst of it, but I like the quirky wrongness that is left. The text makes me ridiculously happy too. The whole painting makes me happy.
