Silver Pitcher and Apple Blossoms - WIP

"Silver Pitcher and Apple Blossoms" Work in Progress

10 x 16 Pastel on White Sanded Paper

Working on a new still life painting after taking a breather with landscapes over the last six weeks.

I began like I always begin, laying in my dark structure, then adding color to the darks, then working on the lights. Today I worked on the pattern of the roses in the teacup.

Everything is still pretty rough, but I think it's going in the right direction.

You may remember this little number, the cuties/white pitcher and lace. I knew right away this wasn't going anywhere. It recently got put in the trash. You win some and you lose some.
