Still life duos

I joined a project in WC where we will be doing 6 still life pictures. Any medium but only two items in the still life. Each one following will have one of the items discarded and a new item in its place. The purpose is to try different things with color, lighting, or anything else you want to work on. I finished my first one tonight.

I am not completely satisfied with this one. It's ok. Not real good. Just passable. I don't like the background. I don't like the colors in the teapot. I do like what I did with the colors in the bowl. It is colored pencil.

The next one will have the same red bowl with a plant sitting in it. At least I think that is what it will be. It won't have the same background. I may set it on a cloth or a white paper. And I think I will put the light overhead We shall see.

Lovely work Jeanne. I would be very please if you send it to me. The bowl is fantastic. I love how you do its surface. I find the teapot looks great too.

The bowl and the pot came out really good!! I'll be checking to see your next one.

You are always so clever. I love the red bowl and the teapot is great. Ellipses are fine!
