Cloth Study in Oil on Canvas Paper


In preparing for a larger painting, here is an oil study of a hanging cloth. I chose to focus on the knot. Below is the finished study. I also included a picture showing the progress of the study throughout the three layers. I had a hard time with the background (green) drape that was hanging behind the knot. It seemed like i couldn’t find the correct green or get the folds and small nuances of the cloth right, but overall I’m happy with the way it turned out.
