Color Study

I'm stuck for a title. This was intended to be a study in extreme light values (whites), but ended up with lots of yellows and ecru, though there are some blues, purples and greens in there. I collected the items at antique stores for a few months before I finally tackled it. It's 12x16 on UArt 400, mostly MVs, with a few Great Americans and Art Spectrum Ultras. Comments are welcomed as always. Thanks very much for looking. Neal

Re: Color Study

"When White Is Not White"? I love a still life study when all of the objects are white. And yes, it is all about value and color. Suggestion? Check the ellipse on the center bowl. The top edge is ever so slightly off. It looks like you may have had it, then changed it. It's a very minor tweak. Now, try another study using white elements, since you have your pastels out on the table.

Re: Color Study

"Fifty Shades of White"?? This one must have been quite challenging. I agree with Karen on the far rim of the center bowl.... it is just a TAD too high. Love your composition. All of these objects are what we would call white... but none is exactly the same color. Great idea!

Re: Color Study

Nicely done! I haven't attempted glass yet and I think your bottle looks great. Painting eggs on white surfaces is fun; so many unexpected colors show up.

Re: Color Study

Great job. That is a hard project. You did a very good job in using white and love the folds

Re: Color Study

Thank you everyone, for the comments. I went with 'White on white' - not very creative. Karen - I did fight with the top edge of the middle pot several times. It's resting in its box right now; I may have another crack at it if I decide to send it somewhere. Donna - I had fun with the bottle - I discovered a hole in it when I went to set up the still life; I ended up covering the hole with duct tape and filling the bottle with flour to avoid leaks. The eggs came from the Easter display at the local craft store, so nothing was going to spoil. It was a fun project overall; I'm thinking about doing a few more monochromes for a series? I still have a long way to go and a lot to learn. Thanks for the help as always. Neal

Hmmm -- I assumed it was a tin cup and just out of round from use --
anyway -- I think this is a remarkable job on a subject only a masochist could love !! lol
