It feels good to be back painting after a long weekend break with family visiting from back east. This little still life study is an idea I have had for a larger studio piece.
I was attracted by the depth in the reflections in the bowl and the cool contrast brought in by the limes. The reflection of the knife added an interesting highlight and line to the composition.
This is a good study for a larger painting but I think I will need to do more experimenting with the composition. Adding a lemon on the right side might help give it a good punch.
