898 The Concert, 8x10, oil on board

I did this still life alla prima the other day at a paint along with the Victoria Sketch Club. I didn't care for the actual background and took the suggestions of a few of the club members. 

875 Luscious Beauties, oil on board, 8x10

I did this using a new medium I mixed myself. It made the paint so creamy. I just love the surface texture. 

874 Red and White Carnations in a Mason Jar, oil on board, 8x10

 What appealed to me about this image was the carnations half submerged in the water in the jar. I saw it when I opened the fridge and thought it would make an interesting image. But I needed to have the light coming through the jar from the bottom and behind as it had on the shelf in the fridge. So I put my setup on a transparent container and opened the window blind to allow the daylight to come through my setup.
I've posted a photo of my setup.

Here's another minimal stroke miniature painting. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. Hope it gets a good home.
