Ink Pot

Diane Mannion, INK POT, 3.5x2.5" oil on linen
Snippet Series #22

      Ultramarine blue underpainting which shows through here and there... sorry I didn't snap a photo of that stage.   This was painted quickly from life, some days there just isn't enough time.  Gave a lot of thought to working more color notes into this painting much like the application of pastels.  Color patches not blended.  The ultramarine lends a luminosity that would not happen if it had been covered.  Maybe I'm striving for a more painterly effect rather than an "illustration."  Maybe I need a nap.
