Dildo study, by Iria Villalobos, oil on canvas 9inx12in
Ok many of you will wonder, why a dildo? Well Ive been away at my parents for the week and when I came home my love bought me flowers. They were really pretty that I really wanted to paint them. So I gathered up my skull and flowers and needed a third object. When I walked back into the room my love put one of her dildos on the still life. So this still life is for her and to show that still life can be fun and can include what ever you want.
1.) I sketched out the painting with burnt umber. I could have made it. I could have made the painting more interesting if I would have put an orange or blue wash first but this is a quick study.
2.) with an 8 flat sable brush I blocked in the local color and blended a bit.
3.) I start to render the painting with the glass vase first and then move onto the flower.
4.) I like to work from background to foreground and dark to light. Since this is an alla prima painting I also work from lean to fat.
5.) Finished work, it was a fun painting that took an hour and a half.
