Still life








Unlike Jan I have not been brave enough to paint plein air. But recently I really wanted to paint from life so I started with apples. Lines and Colors blog featured Jeffrey Hayes' still life paintings and using a shadow box so I built one out of foam core which I used for the lemons painting. I need to tone it down a bit but I like the way you get really dramatic lighting.
