Sorry no post yesterday! We were staying over night with the 6 kids I used to live with so their parents could have a little trip for their anniversary. That’s right, 6. But they’re wonderful and SO much fun. Alas, no painting. I did do this one ahead of time on friday though because I knew I wouldn’t be in the studio all weekend. Being away was actually really refreshing, now I’m craving it. I got two new glass bottles at Goodwill again today, so look for them in upcoming still lifes!
A few things I like and learned from this painting. I like how the shadow turned out, really feels like the lighting is real. And the whole plate in general, the proportions are huge in dishes and I think this one turned out pretty right-on. If I do say so myself. Thought, my forks need some work. Straight on their a piece of cake! From any other angle it’s tricky. I’ll have to pay more attention next time.
