Here are the beginning steps of my still life we started in class. I forgot my printed out reference photo (again) and forgot my camera this time. So I took the pictures with my iphone. Don't know what kind of quality they will turn out to be.
This is where I left off in class.
I darkened the background, worked on putting some colors into the garlic so it will stand out from the pot and cloth. I went over the grapes with a little more color. I think I may even make them more of a red burgundy color before I finish. I put in some of the draped fabric of the background. I will put in a blurred pattern on it later.
Close up of the colors I put into the garlic.
I'm thinking I may add another apple to the mix. Not sure yet.
OK, got to get to painting the rest of it.
