Re: Still Life

Looks good. I like howthe bowl fades into the background. Texture of the background looks like leather.

For CC I would say the highlights are a little harsh. Usually white white will only be on something like a shinny metal object, glass or an actual light bulb.

Re: Still Life

Thanks for the useful critique, Ellis. It's not dry yet so I have a chance to correct it. You are right - the highlights can tone down some.

Re: Still Life

This is lovely. Love the worn spots on the pot rim. Really well done.

Re: Still Life

Very good painting! Did you do this by glazing over a grisaille underpainting, as you did one of your other recent paintings? I, too, like the way the pot seems to be "emerging" from the deep shadows. Very old-masterish!

Re: Still Life

Lovely. Shadow under left fruit is too hard, reflection needs to not be pure white, as already mentioned. Otherwise just fine. I like your earthy colors and lost shadows.

Re: Still Life

Thank you, Loretta7, enelram and billmahler!
WFMartin - Yes, for the past 1 year I have worked with a verdaccio underpainting and apply glazes of color over that.
AllisonR- Thank you for the input. I will fix that.
