|Favourite Yellow Paint, 8x6 oil|
It took me ages to figure out what to paint for 'y'. I realized that my subject matter was sitting right under my nose. I have a few empty tubes of yellow paint sitting in my paint drawer. I'm not sure why I keep them, perhaps in case of a paint emergency I might be able to squeeze another drop of paint out of them. I stopped this painting at this point because I really like the way it looks being a drawing as well as a painting. In fact, I got to this point last night and couldn't bring myself to put another drop of paint on it. After leaving it overnight, and seeing it in the morning, I still couldn't bring myself to paint anything else on it, so here it is, finished, I think.
Michael Harding's Artists Oil Colours, imported from England. I discovered this brand of paint at the local art store. It is superior to any paint I've tried. I especially love the Cadmium Yellow! When it was discontinued at that store, I had to find another supplier. Now I get it from Gwartzman's Art Supply Store in Toronto.
This is painting #25, only 5 more to go for September!
