Still Life Series #5

This is the last of the still life series with coffee and sunflowers. For this one, I put a painting/collage behind the still life set up and like how the figures in the background almost look like you are sitting in a cafe and watching people out the window. I will use this idea again as it solves the question of what to put back there!  I learned that the more you paint something the drawing becomes easier and ideas come faster on new ways to handle the subject.

Still Life with Hot Tea

This still life was set up beside my easel with a light about a foot away from the cup.  I enjoyed studying the effect the light had on the objects and the shapes it cast in the shadow areas.  I love the combination of these colors, too!  The painting is 11×14 inches, acrylic on gesso board.  It is available in my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/187680192/original-still-life-painting-books-and
