Chop Check 1

I noticed my memory needed a little help when it came to painting flowers. So I picked up some sunflowers at the store for a quick still life study.

I like the way the flowers turned out, but I realized how rusty I am when it comes to achieving a couple of textures. A more detailed study is in order, for sure. I noticed the condensation formed inside the vase blurred a lot of lines and gave the vase an overall opaque quality. Next study will probably focus on different textures of inanimate objects.

I especially like the little nod to Van Gogh I performed with the glass vase. If you like Van Gogh, you know what I'm talking about... For this and other works' step by step photo album, please click
