Daily Paintworks- Blue Pot and Nectarines

Another small painting available on the Daily Paintworks site.  This was fun to do.  I like the mysterious quality of the dark shadows and objects emerging from it.  The challenge of the still life is in the set up, at least for me.  It's finding a composition that's exciting or interesting.  It's different from plein air.  Although both are painted from life, plein air is making the most out of what's before you and capturing the light. Still life is creating a scene before you, then making it come alive in paint.  It's all good.
