Still Life Step by Step

When I decided to paint this mixer I was well outside my comfort zone - Still life is not usually my thing- but it turned out so well, it makes me want to smile every time I look at it! Luckily I had taken pictures through out my process so I can outline the process for those interested.
'Mix it Up'
Acrylic on Canvas 16x16 in



1. Started with very thin base coat of burnt sienna and here I have added a little background in neutral hues.

2. Some more blocking in and establishing the color tones.

3.This painting is all about RED and I intend to make it pop out! Keeping it loose, not going in too much detail.

4. Working on the reflection in the metal and completing the next coat.

5. I think the mixer whip dripping cream is the focal point of this painting, so working on it now, just loosely.

Final Painting

As you can see, I have not fussed about the details in this painting, the broad strokes add a bit of drama to it. I hope you like what you see and the process pictures are helpful.I am more than happy to answer any questions!
This is going to be a part of my upcoming exhibition in Basingstoke Willis Museum which starts 22nd September and runs till 27th October.
