|"The Olive Seller" work in progress, oil on linen, 18"h x 24"w, Jill Banks 2011|
This is just a big, sloppy start to "The Olive Seller." I was putting paint on there a la my plein air session yesterday. Olives are a favorite food. They're right up there with pickles.
What I like (already) about this one are the diagonals, the spoons and cards identifying each variety in the foreground.

Tomorrow morning I head down to Alexandria to paint the waterfront. I imagine I'll have a few to show you tomorrow night. And, I imagine they'll be just as messy.
Time to clean my brushes and pack stuff up.
