Hot Garlic

Hot Garlic, Acrylic on Paper, 9"x10", $350
I have been experimenting with setting up a still life in a box lined in white  I use a really bright lamp to get strong shadows.  Then I introduce various backgrounds and bottom colors to see what happens.  In this painting, I set up garlic on a creamy colored paper with a hot orange-red background. Then I moved the light to create really dramatic shadows.  I like the effect.  

Day three of the Challenge.  So far, so good.  I started out this challenge by working ahead.  I find that works better for me than trying to catch up once I have fallen behind.

To purchase this painting, please go to the 30 in 30 Challenge page on my web site.
