Bodegón Amarillo - Óleo sobre lienzo - 65 x 54 cm
Yellow Still Life - Oil on canvas - 26 x 21.6 "
Y una pequeña recomendación: ¡NO manchar con colores oscuros como hice aquí, es casi imposible cubir ese tono con amarillo!
Yellow Still Life
This is the last still life we made at painting class this year. I'm proud of the result. It took me a really long time to finish it (only the hot water carafe on the left took me 6 hours). This time I started with the objects and left the background last (something we're not supposed to do, we're supposed to do the opposite). But I wanted to start with the "easy" part (I find the drapery background too hard... what I have achieved here does not look quite like the real drapery, I kind of "synthesized" it and finished it in almost no time at the end).
One recommendation: DON'T underpaint with dark colors like we did, it's almos impossible to cover with yellow later!!!
Tuve que cubrir todo el fondo con anaranjado para cubrir la mancha oscura
I had to cover everything in the background with orange to cover the dark underpainting
Y luego incluso añadí blanco encima para poder pintar los distintos amarillos...
And later I had to add white all over to be able to add the different yellows...
