Green Bottle with Plums

I have spent the past few days working with these objects and have done several variations of this painting.  I love the colour of the bottle and have enjoyed so much moving the objects around experimenting with different viewpoints and different compositions.  I admit that this is a pretty traditional view and hope to post some more daring designs in the future.

Ginger Jar and Bamboo

I have been continuing to work on my drawing skills.  This painting was done with Burnt Umber and Titanium White on my palette.  The angles of the sides of the jar were tricky and I found it was a great piece to improve my ability to see properly what was there and not just aimlessly paint what I thought I should be seeing.
