My First Still Life - 1 day in

This is oil on canvas - 18 x 24.
Title: La Fonda Breakfast Table

1 day so far. I think I've done the hard part. Now comes the fun part. maybe another day or 2. I'd work though the night but I'll just let it dry and paint on it tomorrow. I don't do much layering - I paint "alla prima" directly on the canvas as it comes out of the package. I love the feel of canvas under my brush. I will do SOME layered detail later, of course. I'll also correct the hues, as I was just going for values so far.

La Fonda is a classy hotel in Santa Fe where I just played (classical guitar) at a wedding. I snapped the pic (on the left) with my iPhone. Loved it so much decided to paint it - although as the title of my post says - I never painted a still life before. In fact it would just be my 11th painting of any kind, but I just started painting 8 months ago.

That is quite an imposing challenge for your first still life.

Less is more.
