Plum and the Green Bottle

8" x 8", oil on panel

This is one of the paintings I brought home unfinished from the workshop. I completed it today---yay!
When I brought it home, the values seemed almost all the same across the painting.  The challenge was to make those objects pop out from the background.  It was a tough painting. The foreground is actually a bit  brighter in real life but I couldn't get the camera to pick up the subtleties.


  1. You rendered the three reflective surfaces so well, and yet differently. I feel like I could reach into this one.
