In Progress


In Progress: Brass Creamer and Blue Plate

Current work for today. There's something really lovely about the blue/yellow color harmony. Vermeer used it a lot, and I can see why; rich and inherently satisfying. Hmm... come to think of it, I guess maybe because they're the predominant colors in the sky.

Anyway, this one's been fun. For some reason I often find cloth patterns less than pleasant, but with this painting, I've been enjoying the challenge a lot.

Ah, front lighting this time. Nice cast shadow.

Thanks Katherine - yeah, I really do like front-lighting. It seems like I don't do it often enough, though that's probably not the case.
