After long week of mostly reading, I finally sat down at the easel and began this painting. It is a conch covered in cellophane. It is a metaphor for the oceans being filled with plastic. It may be a new series. Painting cellophane is not easy. I had to remind myself that painting is about seeing, really looking at the subject.
Here are some earlier pictures of the workin progress.
I love painting translucent and transparent still lives, but cellophane is tricky. If you have any tips or tricks about painting it, please share!
Thank you for reading about my painting process.
