Daily painting practice jelly jar


Today's daily painting : the jelly jar. I was scrounging around the kitchen for something to paint and I spotted this amost empty jar of raspberry jam in the refrigerator. It called out for a portrait.

almost there.

The knife has given me fits. I wish I could get the fine detail in.
I am pleased with the color and drawing. I may try different lighting and compositions based on this subject in the future. It was a lot of fun.
The color in the final photo is a little warmer than the original. The previous photos are closer to the real painting.

Hi Peter,

The jelly jar is very strong - nice light, nice color; I think you really nailed it. Keep posting!
