A new painting and a full discussion of using an acrylic underpainting can be found in the forum section of the site.  Look under the oil painting section.

Thanks so much for the kind words.  I'm taking this one to the gallery tomorrow, so wish me luck.  For those interested in how it was achieved, here's the link to the forum page where I explain the process.

I'm not usually a fan of still life but this has made me a convert. Amazing work!

Thanks Jim!  yea, the best ones tell a story, this one is mainly about silver, crystal and a printed pattern cloth.  The apples are just icing on the cake.
