"The First Cup"
Oil on Board
Coffee...wonderful coffee....helping to get me through the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge!
The still life brought a few challenges. I had the usual reflective surfaces (the mug and the silver spoon) to work with, but also an almost totally white group of objects. My students always freak out when I mention an all white still life. It can be daunting, but it is a wonderful way to learn to see color temperature. It is really fascinating to me to see all the variations of white. The more you look at the objects, the more variations you see. Fun stuff!
Thanks for looking and Happy Friday!
