A Little Test

Peaches, 2009, oil on canvas, 6 x 6 inches
Thought I do a little painting of peaches. It's been a while since I've done one of these "painting a day" exercises, and it was something I needed to do. This was also a good way of putting Sennelier oil paint to the test. Recently I was given a sample tube of their paint and thought why not? Sennelier has reformulated their paints, all pigments are now ground in safflower oil. I was surprised to find out this paint was very intense and it was so smooth and buttery. It was a nice contrast compared to the stiff, yet excellent paints by Williamsburg and Old Holland.
