Still life with fruit and bird

pear bird nutcracker still life updated

Just a few bits and pieces from the kitchen and my lovely little ceramic bird which is called an ocarina with which you can play tunes (hence the holes). I set this still life on a kitchen towel next to the window for maximum light.I showed my painting to Marina Kulik who is the watercolour teacher at the Hangar art centre (near Grasse) and she advised me to put more purple colours into the shadows for a greater impact and the result is that the objects certainly stand out…..Very effective… Thanks Marina !
