Lighter Brighter Gloom Gone

I used FUB as the hub and because french ultramarine can get opaque quite quickly when mixed, you get a thick stew. Fun to see how far you can go before you can see yerself in it. Full sheet upgrade on the sorrow inducing previous edition. Painted in a little over two hours.

Just playing with light and shape shifting so that the shapes and the cast shadows and core shadows and reflected light all combine for an improved visual effect. If you can figure out where the light is coming from, you are a step ahead of me. Painting alla prima with no references and getting the whole program under some kinda of control involves a bunch of decisions that you have to make on the fly. I love this challenge because it forces you to get your act together. I painted this flat dead flat, just to remember the difference. It gets opaque quite quickly but you can see the granulation pretty good.
Bink to explore the inner reaches...

To the inexpert eye pearl necklace may all look the same but on looking closely it is amazing to see how each pearl earrings can be different from the other. This is hardly surprising given that each individualfresh water pearl earrings is formed by a completely natural process inside a living christmas jewelry which can take months and even years to complete. The beauty and natural perfection of a high quality mother of pearl pendant is a really a wonder of nature!
