White and Green
When I first set up this composition, I arranged the apples, pear, cutting board and an empty wine glass that I planned to fill with a little red wine.
Once everything was in place, however, I knew white wine would fit better with the color scheme. I picked a Chardonnay and some brie cheese to go with it.
Back in the studio, I filled up the wine glass, added the wedge of cheese, and worked a little to rearrange the composition. Once everything was in place, it was time to paint. Here it is:
If you want to see it in person, make a visit to the Lagerquist Gallery in Buckhead!
Red Wine with Cheese and Bread
Well, it's pretty obvious, I need to try harder to post more often here. It seems that there's always something that keeps me away.
I actually painted this one before the painting with foil (see previous post here) but it was bought by some friends right after I finished it and I forgot to take a photograph.
I got a chance to take this photo a few weeks ago; my friends were kind enough to lend us their pickup truck when we moved into our new home, so I grabbed a quick photo during the visit.
We are finally getting settled into our new house. We only moved about half of a mile down the road. The baby has now his own room and I now have a proper studio space. Cheers to that!
