#4 Ceramic, brass and copper!
I did this still life at my weekly painting class. It took a couple of weeks, and I finished it yesterday. We wanted to try and capture the different textures of these objects, the shine and glow of the brass pots, the dull copper of a very old copper kettle and the matt finish of the ceramic pots. As a composition I now feel that maybe a potted plant instead of the tall candle stand at the back may have been better. I really enjoyed painting it, trying to also get the lights and darks, the shadows and reflections. I find I use quite a limited palette...with around 5 to 6 colours and this seems to be enough for almost all my work.
