"Potato Salad"

Acrylic   11"x14"   Canvas Board   NFS

I painted this for my nephew who loves potato salad and loves to make it with his grandma. It was fun to try to capture so many different textures. Having the actual objects in a still-life arranged in front of me and painting them from life is a great excercise in observation. I can control the light source, overlap objects to create depth, and then simply paint what I see.
