“Seven Deadly Sins: Sloth”: 90 From Life – Day 46
This is day 46 of my 90 day challenge to do one new painting from life each day.
It’s also the fourth day of a series within the series where I tell the story of the Seven Deadly Sins using my collection of marble eggs. Today’s shortcoming is Sloth.
As I’ve mentioned before, one of the neatest things about this project is the opportunity to work with a lot of objects I haven’t painted before, like the egg carton here. The processed cardboard or fiber board – whatever it is – has a subtle texture that’s not quite like anything else I’ve tackled before – it was a pleasure to paint.
This video shows the whole process of making this painting – start to finish – about 4 hours of work condensed to less than 3 minutes.
