"Cucina Italiana"

Well... yes... ok, it's been a while since I posted last. I spent a week in Marocco just before Easter, and then spring and the nice weather kept me from painting. But now I'm back at the easel and finished my Italian still life.
While the last paintings I posted where done in a rather quick and loose way, today's painting is done in layers / glazes and took quite some time. But I really like the effect and depth achieved with glazing.

acrylics on canvas, 13x28 cm

Ehmmmm... ja.... also....
Nun, es gibt keine Ausrede, es ist schon viel zu lange her seit meinem letzten Eintrag. In der Zwischenzeit war ich eine Woche in Marocco, dann war Ostern, und bei dem schönen Frühlingswetter kam ich kaum zum Malen.
Aber ich habe doch eines meiner zwei Bilder fertig. Im Vergleich zu den letzten Bilder habe ich diese in Schichten gemalt, um mehr Tiefe und lebendigere Farben zu erhalten.
