Green tablecloth

"green tablecloth", daily painting by Philine van der Vegte
"Green tablecloth" Original oil painting on panel 15x15cm.

I wanted to practise with material expressions, and this checkered tablecloth was on the kitchen table. I found it on a flea market, and love the fresh green colour. The stripes were no joke to do though! I definitely need better brushes for this kind of work. What a good excuse to go to the art shop tomorrow!
This is daily painting number 25, available on Etsy.

Het is weer het einde van het trimester, en het werk wordt beoordeeld deze week. Vandaag overal in het gebouw de schilderijen bij elkaar geharkt voor docente Tatyana Yassievich die ons atelier lessen gaf dit trimester. Hier kun je alles bekijken wat ik bij haar heb geschilderd, het een geslaagder dan het ander. En nu gauw kunstgeschiedenis gaan leren.

This is a shelf in my studio where I keep some of my brushes in a vase I found in the charity shop. It is a trophy of the pigeon breeders club. Pretty over the top, irresistible to me...

Last week's tulips

Daily painting #7, "Last week's tulips", oil on panel 15x15cm.
I painted these old tulips in class at the academy. They have been lying around for over a week now, but are still interesting, maybe even more than when they were fresh. I started a larger painting of them, and failed miserably. I decided to give it another go and in a short time painted a small version of what I had wanted to achieve with the big painting!

Do you have old cups that you cherish?
