Some of you may remember this bowl of rice painting I did many, many months ago. I wasn’t pleased with how it turned out so I gave it a makeover and here’s what it looks now. Hope you like it better. I used the Mars Red again to intensify the reds and deepen the background a little.

After a long (unintended) break, here is a new post to start the New Year right. I just recently bought a tube of Mars Red and I’m having a lot of fun with it. The background in the rice painting above was painted with it. Alone or with a bit of blue, it’s a gorgeous deep red color which is very opaque. So nice to paint with!

I hope you all enjoyed the holiday season. Happy New Year, my friends!

I’ve come to accept that finishing one painting each and every day would mean that some of these will not always turn out the way I hoped for.

One of those which did not turn out very well was this bowl of rice. I had a very difficult time painting the rice realistically, in addition to the bowl.

But with every painting, be it a failure or a success, there are always lessons to be learned. What I learned as a result of this painting was that I really should take the extra time to analyze the subject carefully…and that those colorful little dots on the chopsticks were so much fun to paint!
