Coffee table still life


Thursday 27. 08. 15 Worked today on my coffee table. It is an Ikea table in some kind of bleached pseudo wood and I’ve never really liked it. I have decided to do a still life on it, a kind of trompe d’oeil of the usual clutter.

An experiment



Saturday 22. 08. 15 Because I have enjoyed drawing Le Rhônel I thought that I would try a drawing on canvas and then paint it with thin glazes allowing the drawing to show through. The above is the result. I think more experiments are in order.
