Daily Painting Practice - Studio Still Life
Here are three more Thrift store treasures. Actually four, the same red cloth I used in yesterday's post. The large ceramic pot is blue in real life. I liked the tall shape but not the color for the composition. So, I changed it to a more earthly tone.
Sometimes these small paintings show a lot of personality. I think this painting shows a quiet strength. Because the composition is built on solid shapes. The main one being a triangle ( the strongest shape) The light also is strong but holds the quiet. What do you think? Do you ever see human traits in still life paintings or should I be seeking medical attention?
