Maple Syrup & Mixed Nuts

schaeferart maple syrup mixed nuts paintingI finally decided to do a still life with subtle, neutral colors.

I feel fully saturated colors can sometimes make a scene look fake, so I try to stay away from that when possible. Let's hope I can keep finding interesting things in my pantry to paint.
