Well! Since Christmas and over New Years I've been in a whirl of family and boats and sunshine, and now I'm finally trying to get back into routine.
Yesterday I was suddenly inspired to paint a still life after watching a How to set up a still life Video, which shows it takes a long time to set up a good composition. I spent most of the day setting up my makeshift shadow box which you can see in the photo above. There is another lamp behind my easel which is lighting my little set up.
I only had an hour to paint, after I had done that so this is how I left it yesterday. Must go and do as much painting as I can today for I won't have much time in the rest of the week.
