White Pitcher...Still on the Easel

"White Pitcher and Apple" 9 x 12" hard pastels on Colorfix sanded paper (Work in Progress)
This is a painting I have done outside of class with a still life set-up at home. As I mentioned in my earlier post, this is lit with warm light therefore the shadows will be warm (relative to the lights). I had to stop this afternoon as I needed to stop and think about it logically.
I have worked on the foreground, darkened the background, worked on the apple light side, and pecking away at the drawing of the pitcher.
I love to study the work of my pastel instructor, Deb Bays, to see how she uses color and edges in her work.
