I thought I would go back to basics and do some still life paintings to practice the basics like light.

I found this great little vase in a junk shop for $6.00 AUD.

Still going with this one. What should have been one session has stretched out over a week and still no end in sight!

Still have to fix shadows, re-do background, paint the vase pattern and highlights, give the cloth more life, adjust here and there. Overall I'm happy so far but I didn't follow the sequence I was supposed to, I keep going back and fiddling...
