White Bowl and Walnut

2012, Oil on Canvas, 5"x 7"


This is a painting that was started as a demo. I sometimes give my painting students a homework assignment where I give them a brown object, in this case a walnut. I have them paint it using no earth colors. The challenge is not how to mix brown but to find as many alternatives to brown as possible and keep the painting plausible.
