The month is almost over and I've had only two posts. The reason is that I've changed my focus from painting small and often to working on a larger piece and teaching. I'm giving myself time to explore this new opportunity of teaching, which I really enjoy.
Below is my still life set-up including a hobnail bowl a friend Michelle Winnie gave me.
I generally simplify my objects when painting and this bowl is far from simple.
The textures and colors of this bowl were complicated. I tried to suggest its' texture by putting only a few of the hobnails located on the outside of the bowl. To add more would have been too fussy. Instead, I concentrated on getting the look of glass.
