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.
