Wow, this is pretty. I like the way you captured all the different metals. Your washy style is also great. Love that background, too!

I was intrigued by your title.Wanted to see which kitchen items might be in a museum. :lol:

I really like your composition and the colors work well together. (Might have been nice to see a little of that burnt sienna somewhere else in the painting so it wouldn't look isolated.)

I like all of the "things" (not sure what they were all used for ;) ), but I especially like the foreground jug with the blues and purples and that spot of yellow as a highlight.

you have captured the various kitchen item well especially their reflective qualities and the litle touches of rust, brill:thumbsup:

Thankyou Darla!

Thankyou Judi. I've been spending the last couple of months working in my sketchbooks daily and I am amazed at how I see it has loosened me up with my watercolours. :)

LOL...Thankyou Sylvia.
Actually, it's Brown Madder not sienna and it is in the rust marks on the large white strainer and also echoed in some of the reflections although that doesn't show too well here, perhaps it shows more in the larger version (http://bp1.blogger.com/_NQAiUjjYTO8/RnCQF3NsARI/AAAAAAAAAjQ/Q8bgugYSPRY/s1600-h/scan0002.jpg)
You always give such detailed feedback, thankyou so much for taking the time to do that I find it so useful! :thumbsup:

Thankyou Joanne, pleased to hear the rust marks came over well.
