"Snack Time II", Oil, 6" x 6"

I finished this painting in two sittings.  Well, I used a third sitting to add more highlights and more depth in the shadows on the glass.  Many times when we assume that something is white, like the glass of milk, but it is not.  Compared to the other objects around it, it may read as being white, but there are many color variations due to the color of the light source, reflected light and the turning of the object into the background.  So, I used a black and white value scale to get the values right and then isolated small sections of the glass by looking through a small viewfinder, which allowed me to see the color in the shadows and the lights.  The major thing to take into account is that the final painting works as a whole.  This painting costs $225 and is framed in a 3" deep frame and ready to hang.  For more information or to purchase, click here.
