"Beet" by Jonathan Aller

5 x 7 in
Oil on Canvas Panel
I decided to paint these subtle values due to there natural light appearance, the colors and values has a subdued look that I was trying to go for.  It's not easy to paint this type of lighting and glad I forced myself to do so.  As you can see I also started with a under wash painting as I did with the previous painting, the same situation occurred with the turps lifting with the paints.  It's always a great challenge to paint through situations that one's not used to.  

You can see the making of this painting on my blog:
