Reflecting Tangerines


Oil on 1/4" Board. Approx 6"x6" SOLD

I did a little experiment when I started this painting. I setup the camera on my phone and started recording. I only got the first half hour but at least you can see how I usually start. The video is on YouTube. You can see it here.

Cool video Michael. Do you always paint them lying flat? I assume that was on a table top or something. Maybe it was just the camera angle.

Thanks for the comment. I always work flat for my smaller paintings. When I first started I painted at my kitchen table and didn't have room.
