Cherry with Marigold

I just came back from a workshop in Vermont with my very favorite artist --- Stanley Bielen!  The above is one of several paintings completed at the workshop.  It was a great experience.  Mr. Bielen is a generous teacher and all around nice guy.  Below is a series of images from one of his demos.

Carnations with Cherries

Usually when composing a still life, I choose the fewest objects possible but for this painting decided to  have more overlapping objects.

Silver Teapot

White paint was used in abundance in the mixtures during this painting which did make me mindful of the advice often given "Too much white = dull, chalky colors".   In this case though, I still liked the outcome.
