I’m still trying to improve in oil painting, and that has meant practicing still life with anything I happen to have on hand. In this case, I used a couple of old wrenches that I keep in my junk sculpture supply box. I actually did this painting some time ago, back before my Civil War Soldier.
This painting was fun…I enjoyed trying to get the feel of the metal and the rust. Each oil painting is a learning lesson, and I enjoyed this piece a lot.
-Painted with oil paints. Indian Yellow, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue and White.
-Painted on a 6×8 inch canvas board
Here is a photo of the wrenches I used for my still life.
And the actual painting.
Close ups. Sorry for the glare, the paint was wet when I took the photos below.
Thanks for looking! 🙂
