Playing a little with “glowing edges” around those green sprouts. This is something I would like to incorporate more into my work. I think it adds a lot of drama to a painting.

Garlic is definitely one of my most favorite subjects to paint, and my most favorite part to do in a garlic painting is putting on the thin white tips of the cloves.

Here’s a more complex arrangement. I really enjoy painting garlic and the design on the pot was also fun to do. I don’t think I’ve ever used pure ultramarine before.

Another late post today. I was painting up until about 12:30 AM yesterday and cleaning the brushes and palette in preparation for next day’s painting session meant that I didn’t go to bed until about 1:20 AM. As a result, I woke up later than I should.

Anyway, here is today’s daily painting. It’s very simple but I’m really happy with how it turned out. I know most (if not all!) art look so much better in real life than on the monitor and I feel that it is especially true with this painting. I tried to get the colors and values accurate but there is still something about the original that is lacking in the computer image.

Oh, by the way, I love working on squares!

BEHIND THE SCENES: Garlic Cloves
I almost always have paint leftover on my palette after each painting is done. I gather all these leftover paint in piles, mixing similar colors together, and almost always creating mud (I hate throwing away paint!). Sometimes I am able to use the “mud piles” for the next painting, sometimes not. For the background in this painting, I used one of the leftover mud piles. I toned it with some yellow ochre to create a grayish yellow-brown. I think it didn’t turn out too bad despite being just a mud mix. What do you think?
