Challenged myself with some silver dishes on this one. Came out pretty well in the end but it was somewhat a struggle most of the time. Learned from it though and that is the important part. #stilllife #painting #fruit
Starting to adapt to these darker backgrounds and beginning to understand how to make them work with the rest of the scene. It can usually be quite tricky to use an even number of objects in a scene [or so we are told] but I feel this one works. Must be the colors of the apple acting as the main focal point but then the height of the cup draws some secondary attention, so there's some sort of tension in a sense - or I've just been looking at it too long. I think it is good to understand why some subjects or setups work or don't work.
What's the point of painting if you don't have fun with it? I wanted to keep this one loose and challenge myself in that area - and had a lot of fun. That's what it is all about for me. $100 Purchase on Etsy - Click Here
