"Three Plums" by Marina Petro
Original oil on Raymar Canvas Panel
Email me to inquire about purchasing this piece.
This is a painting I did when I attended Carol Marine's wonderful workshop last month. Better late than never...My intention for the workshop was to learn to paint faster, which would hopefully make it a bit easier to keep up with the rigors of daily painting. What I found is that it is difficult to integrate new ways of doing things in the immediate. We are creatures of habit. I do like this painting though. It was more along the lines of an exercise in values and applying Carol's technique which is quite foreign to me. It involved simply putting down your color and not going over or blending anything. I am accustomed to blending my colors on the canvas which was a no no. I am happy I attended and we'll see how it all washes out...
