# 114: Chaperone

6" x 6" oil on canvas
I started this painting last week and was about halfway done when I realized that I was just too sick to continue and by the time I got back to it had completely dried. I started by wiping the whole thing with medium. It was quite a different feel working this way and I managed to keep more of the under-glaze showing through. I would like to achieve this look more often when working alla prima.


  1. Looks nice and shiny too.
    I wonder if that is due to your new method as well?

    It's a nice contrast from the shiny peppers to the matte background, an of course your shadows always make me happy.


  2. I like this color combo Alice. You do nice work, I will follow your blog!
