The Old Drawing Board

22" x 16"
Painting size

with frame

Oil on canvas.

In this painting I wanted a trompe l'oeil challenge. I attached objects to an old drawing board. I pinned and taped a photo of a French doll and its packaging with stamps and a beautiful blue butterfly to the board. My challenge was several textures, shadows, and that blue color. I also made the simple wood frame.
