Sweet and Sour

Still lifes present unique challenges.  The initial challenge being what do you put into the still life?  I am forever pondering this and often the things I put in are a combination of things I find interesting aesthetically and things that need to be there for the composition to work.  This particular still life includes two pitchers that I found at the Good will and I liked their profiles.  Marbles are just fun to paint.  Jelly beans and the lemon?   Color, baby!  I am still learning the intricacies of painting white.  Not as straight forward as you may think, as white objects, especially shiny ones, reflect the color that surrounds them.  Lots of looking!
