Reviewing Sketchbooks

 Winter is a good time to look through old notes and sketches for ideas that were put on hold. This composition is one I had been thinking about for awhile. It was fun to break from my usual canvas proportions and work on this tall narrow canvas. I also tried a palette knife as well as brushes for the background which made an interesting texture. When I was arranging the bag and oranges and working on the the painting, I was thinking about circles. Now I'm seeing lots of triangles in the composition.

  1. I love your style Sara Qualey! I just found your work this morning.

  2. Hi Jean. Thanks for checking out my blog and your kind words. I've painted a lot of oranges over the years, but find there is always a something new to explore.
