Cutie in a Cup - Daily Painting

"Cutie in a Cup" 5 x 7" oil on canvas board - Daily Painting
SOLD

I don't usually a bird's eye view composition (from the top), but I liked these little cuties I pirated from my son's refrigerator yesterday. The cup and the viewpoint seemed to be a little more of a challenge for my daily setup. I also used south light from the window this morning to set it up, another challenge. I am used to classical lighting from the left with a incandescent bulb. I really had to observe on this one.

Love your handling of the shadow v. light composition, also the touches of orange along the edges.

Thanks Mike! I had to edit this one a bit...there were some funky light and shadow shapes around the handle that didn't really make sense or add anything to the painting. Thanks for following along!
