All Tied Up II

All Tied Up II
Image Size 16" x 36"

Well, I painted the larger version of last week's study but as I see it in this photo, I can see that I need to push the values quite a bit.  So far, I like the study better.  I do like the background texture on this though.  I put a mixture of gesso and water on the paper with a piece of cardboard and made the texture.  I'll probably work on this more this week and see where I can take it.  Do you like the study (the previous post) or this one better?


  1. I really like this one better, Nancy. I can see what you mean about the values when I compare it to the last post's piece, but I think this one has more movement, a more natural feel to the asparagus themselves. Love how you handled the background too.

    1. Thank you Sherry. I agree that the asparagus feels more natural. I think I will place with the values some more though just to make them pop.

  2. That was a very creative way to make the textured background... it's so beautiful! This is a unique piece, Nancy, I like the color choice of subtle complements and the rhythm of the lines and shapes.
