90 From Life: Day 16 – Turmeric Jar
This is day 16 of my 90 day challenge where I make one new painting from life each day.
The subject for today’s painting is a nearly-empty jar of turmeric powder – one of those happy moments where I saw something out of the corner of my eye and realized it would make a great painting. I also liked the fact that it was almost empty. Something about that made a more compelling painting than if it was nearly full.
The inside of the jar was coated with a fine dust of the turmeric, and that made for an interesting effect to capture as well.
Here’s a video where I show the model I worked from, and discuss the outcome of the painting:
