oil on linen 4 x 4"
Another painting from my photo session with a Hershey's kiss. Such a good subject! : beautiful, sensuous, easily identifiable, and challenging. That aluminum foil seems to not want to be re-created. Painting on linen is much easier with these realistic studies, but my compatriots are urging me to go the next step and just use a gesso-ed panel. I'm afraid if I do that, every little fiber and dust mote will show up on the finished painting.
What do you think, linen or smooth panel?
