A second painting of the amber vase and lemon from a different angle and with a different set-up. The most challenging part of this painting was to simplify the vase's shadow and deciding on its color/value. This took me several days of musing.
Below is the drawing I did prior to the painting. I do lots of drawings of different setups. This is a way for me to choose my still life and help me really look closely at my objects.
