#274 - Honey Jar
2.5"x 3.5"(ACEO) oil on artboard SoldMan, these last two aceos kept pickin up glare on the scanner. Hmmm, I see plan of evil is being foiled. The plan being put a thirsty enough ground (gesso etc.) on the board so that it sucks up all the oil in the paint. Then it's matte when you scan it. After you then have to varnish it to get the vibrancy back. Drink up gesso!
I also wanted to mention that I'm a gadget geek and have been waiting eagerly for a good painting app for my palm pre. Well it finally here and it's called Paintr. Of coarse, one of the first things I had to try to paint was a pear:
The developer (Chris of Codeslaw) liked it so much he wants to use it as an example in the palm pre app catalog. I'm pleased as a peach and hope to make many more little paintings with this very cool app.
