"Eggplant to the Nines" by Beth Bathe

"Eggplant to the Nines", #14/30, 12 x 12 in, oil on canvas
So today I decided to switch it up a bit. First I decided to paint on a black canvas, on a larger size than I normally paint, and to paint a color that is not on my palette, PURPLE!

This was tough start on the black surface, with a dark subject, I blocked in the lights first and tackled the purples second. All in all I think it turned out rather well.
