Sweet Things

6X6

$100
Available on my Etsy site

 
This was a fun little painting to do.  I backlit the still life so that the light would shine through the jar of honey and light the edges of the candy can.  I was working wth darker values and balancing the composition with light.  I am very happy with this little painting.

It glows. I love the color reflected on the candy cane, honey and the reflection in the ornaments. Beautifully done Linda.

This is a lovely still life. Love the warm colors against the white backgroun and how you place the white grey passive Christmas ornament (not sure if you call it a ball.

I often back lit my still life, gives so much interesting shadows..

Thank you, Roger. I liked the value changes when lighting from the back, also.
