Amber's backside (standing nude)

Did some more work on this five by seven, when I started it I ran out of ivory black, so it never got dark enough which is essential for a tonal painting like this, it came to the full value range on the second pass.

Bowl of apples and an orange

This as an older small still life that I just re-touched, what I usually do is add a layer of linseed oil all over the dried painting and bring life and color to an old painting, some parts stay untouched and some are completely re-painted.

Blue bottle Gardenia 5x7 still life

 Lately I've been paying more attention to the selection of objects for a still life and especially their color and how they can compliment each other in the composition, I try to visualize it in my mind first before even setting it up, then I try to recreate that concept the best way I can.
