Interior - Kitchen

Recently I have been working on my skills to transfer what I see to a canvas and making sure the right proportions are still in tacked. While it isn't perfect it is far better than what I would have done without using the rule of thirds.


To keep it loose, I made sure to use the biggest brush I had for the longest I could. Only would I pick up a smaller brush for the final touches of detail. Lots to work on for the next painting but everything is a start.
