Bad Peppers Composition

This painting I did this evening while watching the Simpsons, Family Guy, et. I hate the Family Guy by the way. Its for my figure comp class with Dough Martenson and the homework was to make a bad composition and paint it. So I plopped two peppers I bought at the store today down on the dinning room table and went at it. It's oil on MDF, about 9 x 12 I guess, it was on an odd sized small panel I had laying around. I used Liquin Detail as the medium so it would start tacking up right away.

Nice work.

Did he explain why he wanted bad compositions?

Mike Manley said...

Thanks Jesse, I think it's to better understand what a good composition is by way of doing one with glaring faults. I'll post what Doug says later tonight.

"I hate the Family Guy by the way"

That cracks me up. I always feel the same need to qualify having watched a few minutes of that terrible show.

That's so good, Mike. The shine of the peppers really shows through. Can hardly wait to see more.
