The start of a studio still life

Got to my studio fresh from all the Thanksgiving visiting and got to work. Not certain how to avoid the stale and the hackneyed with the set up – I’ll need more experimenting and working through it. I rearranged the components several times, had a false start on the canvas, wiped it down, rearranged again and started painting, fearful that I wouldn’t paint this weekend at all if I didn’t commit to something. So, here’s a photo of my arrangement and today’s progress on a 20×20 inch canvas – and oh, and yes, colors are off . . . that is why we have tomorrow.

    Love it — the painting and the story of the progress and the whole idea of going back to “by the book” — I’ve been painting “by the seat of my pants” for too long now, some bookishness might help!

    Thanks I’m working through Ian Roberts’ Mastering Composition for the next month or two – should be helpful.
