Like the previous Brass and Still Life painting, I wanted to paint a brass subject. Using a slightly different set up, I tried out a different composition. Not sure which one I like better, but I would love to hear your thoughts on which Brass Still Life appeals to you. Traditionally, I have always loved oil paintings that depicted onions and eggs and since they share similar colours I wanted to integrate these items to off set the cool brassy notes. Currently I have not been painting as I was preparing for a three week sketching course that I recently taught at the university. Sketching is one of my favourite things to do because I draw from life. With both sketching and painting from life, I enjoy the valuable experience of connecting to my subjects and the challenge of seeing rich tones of colours from my subjects. I am looking forward to getting back to painting in oils as my class at the university is finished.
