A Dramatic Change in the progress

Today my painting went form this...

To this...

I was falling quickly out of love with my first composition as both objects were calling for all the attention and I became confused about my subject. And then when I came to painting the white cloth things just got so bad that the little jug was the only thing worth saving, so I painted over the rest and picked a rose from the garden.

It is still unfinished, the rose is just sketched in for now and I still have to work on the jug. (The problem with painting from life is that shapes change if you move just a little bit! But I'm happy with where it's going and I may add something below the jug on the right to break up that diagonal line the composition has taken. 


  1. Whoa. That's brilliant! I can't believe the change! It's so beautiful! I really do love the rose and jug. It's so....quaint. Perfect. I really do love it!

  2. Really like the new composition! I understand what you're saying about the diagonal line, but I like all the negative space...it's rather dramatic. :) -Kendal

    1. Thank you for commenting! I'll finish it soon and post the final result.
