6 inch X 9 inch oil on canvas sheet
I painted this for the DPW weekly challenge. I thought I was finished several times, but after I'd come back to it I'd see areas that weren't right.
Painting white really is a challenge! I've been reading the posts from other people who entered, and we all agree it is difficult. I could see colors in the reference photo, so I tried to bring those into my painting.
I remember in one of my earliest painting classes, I was struggling to make my "floating fruit" sit down on the table. My teacher came by and asked, "Why did you put purple in that shadow? There isn't any purple there." I dutifully took it out. Now I put purple in my shadows if I want to! Heh.
