Lately, I have been doing at least 3 paintings of the same subject. It really helps me try new things. Here is the photo of my subject for painting #2. I will probably try a third one, but haven't decided what approach for this one. I might add some flowers.
If you want, try painting this set-up with a new spin.
Here pushing the use of darks and thinking about edges.
Here emphasis on lots of paint, but I don't like the brushwork, wish I had used a palette knife for the heavy paint. (I used a palette knife for the heavy paint in painting # 2).
