This was a palette knife excersize in class. I like how it turned out, after all!
Lesson learned on this one: silence my cast shadows. I have a tendency to make them far too lively.
I just realized I didn't paint the table top.. There is time to calm the shadow.. I'll be back..
I am missing some of my needed darks, but, I think the shadow looks quieter.. Only too solid. But that's for another day..
Okay. Time to stop!
Now I'm happier because it's more nuanced. There is play with reflected color. An element whose absence was more felt than seen.
