Key limes and Fall Mums. This is part of a larger still life that I am working on, which is my new plan; to paint 'painting a day' s and concurrently work on a large still life. This painting is on gessoed board. The gesso is from Daniel Smith, an art supplier, its already tinted with pigment, which in this case is yellow ochre. I love painting on a hard and smooth surface, the paint sits up so well, and is so much more obedient somehow.
