Here is the reference photo and step by step shots of today's painting. The reference photo is for composition only (step 2) - useful if I have to dismantle the scene and set it up again. I paint using the actual still life set up as reference.
When I worked in colored pencil, I had the best titles for my work! Heartfelt, September Song, One Fine Day, Long Ago and Far Away, Comfort and Joy. I've decided to start reusing titles. Today's piece is called Comfort and Joy. And, just to amuse myself, I will post the original Comfort and Joy below today's version.
