#1098 Less White

Today I limited how much white I mixed into my paint. I have a tendency to make lights by adding white, when I should just be making my darks darker. . . (I think). still life, acrylic, 4"x8" $100 click here to purchase  


  1. Nice job Lisa.
    Love the shape and size of this one. The darks and lights of the red jump out from the canvas. Nice.
    Love all the activity in the vase. Great work.
    Take care.

  2. Love your change of canvas size. Your paintings are magnificent!

  3. Never noticed any problems with your lights, sweetie. This is beautiful. 4x8? How'd you do that??? Enjoy your Cape time....

  4. Hi! The hardware store here has 4x8" panels cut, probably because of all the plein air classes at the PAAM, you think? I am not sure, but it's been fun to break out of the squares.

  5. Gorgeous colors. I just did a series on using yellow because I disliked what I was getting, and I found my problem was adding White.
    Regarding makaing darks darker...If I go too dark my image on the computer looks far darker than it is. Do you have that problem I wonder.
    I have emailed before so wonder if mine were in the pile you were going through. I am a huge admirer of your work.
