Oil on panel, 3.5 x 3.5 inches
Some time recently I commented here that I really loved painting brass. Well, doing this piece did nothing to change my mind in that regard. It’s just a wonderful metal to work with; incredibly warm overall, yet having surprising coolness as it turns into shadow.
I’ve been tackling some complicated and ambitious subjects lately (like this one, certainly!), and now I feel like I need to cool my heels a little bit. Look for some fun and simple paintings this coming week.
