Day 7: Elements #7: Wood, Seaweed, Glass

Elements #7: Wood, Seaweed, Glass, 6"x6", studio, oil on panel, © 2017 R.L. Delight

I started this the first day of the challenge. I decided I wanted to be able to put more time into it so I worked on it after painting the daily challenge painting. Today I figured it was close enough to being finished so I finished it up for today's painting. I really enjoy the sensuous beauty of driftwood. I have a hard time resisting putting it into my paintings. I also love the organic curves of the dried seaweed. Painting glass is a lot of fun as well. I had a good time painting this one!

Here is a studio shot:

This is my still life corner. I have an old trunk and a treadle sewing machine set up for my surfaces. Both are up on a stage to bring the height up closer to my eye level. I have had the set up for this painting on the trunk since the first of the month. I will be happy to be able to take it down now and move on.

The Pacific Northwest has been very cold. Too cold to go out painting. I had many layers on the last time I went out and I got colder than I should have with the wind chill next to the water. Thankfully the ice will be turning to rain soon. I am having fun with still life but would like to get back out to do a bit of plein air painting. I am looking forward to it!
