Method: This silver vase showed such beautiful reflections! The first time I painted silver it was just a simple spoon in my first small daily painting. Since I didn't know what I was doing, I went to my favorite art resource, Carol Marine's Daily Painting book. What I read made all the difference: there's very little white in silver! This tip saved me a lot of grief.
Roses: I've been working and re-working the roses in this painting for many months. My small rose painting that I posted yesterday was actually painted after this and I can see improvement from this one to that one.
Grapes: Why do artists love to paint grapes? Personally, I don't know because they are challenging. My husband doesn't even like to eat them because they remind him of eyeballs.
