Coffee Mug Painting, Still Life in Oil, "Red Cup"

Coffee Mug Painting, Still Life in Oil, "Red Cup"


This painting is a further experimentation in my style of "criss-cross applesauce." In the cup, the strong red of the light-side grabs the attention, because of its brightness and saturation. You'll also notice that areas where I use a rounded stroke rather than a straight one capture the eye. 8 x 8" in oil.
