"Grandma's Sugar Bowl" --- Sold

Upon workshop artists’ request, I did the third demo. The main object of this demo was a white sugar bowl with gilded gold lines. It was so fun painting it. I felt more at ease dealing with white objects now. I painted the light area of the sugar bowl quite gray, so I have enough value range for high lights. I think I can push the value down even more and still  make the sugar bowl look white. It is amazing how much potentials we have in our painting practices. That is the way we grow.

You blew these still life demos away at this workshop. The camelias were a great addition to your beautiful set ups. The sugar bowl is amazing and NOBODY paints apples better than you. Is that you in front of the sugar bowl?
