Painting Copper

Daily Paintworks has a challenge this week, November 9, to paint something made out of copper.  My piece is not new and not particularly shiny as it was lacquered long ago.  In my still life set up, I made sure to place the colorful reflections and light so that they would enhance the copper.  I painted this alla prima and had fun comparing the values and colors within the values, paying attention to the value of the reflections.

This is available in my Etsy shop:
