I picked up a new striped tablecloth. Not a very elaborate pattern, but it’s a fun backdrop for a still life. I thought a combo of red stripes, along with lobster and some other striped cloth would work well together. Even though painting stripes can be monotonous, but I like following the color of the stripe as it passes from light to shadow. There can even be subtle shifts in hue from one stripe to another within the same light situation.
This painting is 48×36.” I find that these colorful tablecloth-scapes are fun on a larger scale because the viewer can get lost in the pattern.
