Alright, last one of the eggplants. This particular variety of eggplant has a lot of white in it (little white stripes) and I was getting frustrated because the other two paintings were coming out so light. So with 131 I decided not to use white at all and let the white of the canvas do the work.
I was shocked at how much more vibrant the ended up being. It’s not very realistic (the actual vegetable had more white in it) but I love the way the color pops.
After all those sepia toned paintings from last month I think I wanted to get some color on the canvas. Same issue with the loose nature of this one. I was tired of making things so tight and wanted to give this a little more life.
