Stacked Cups + Apple 2


























A retry of the same subject but using more paint and stronger color. 
Cast shadows have so much more color than I've noticed before. Also 
reflected light from surrounding areas in the object. I seem to be trying 
to marry my "swashbuckling" paint-handling to material objects. As I 
continue to work this out, my observation skills keep improving, not 
only of the objects in the set-up but the photographed piece on the 
monitor. It's really helpful to see it from this perspective.
