I still love painting still life when I return to them after doing portraits. They are like going on vacation for me.
My drawing for the day's challenge yesterday was the block in for this cup and saucer called "Still Loved". Obviously, it didn't take me a full half an hour to draw it so I sketch a little girl's head in my sketch book to make up the full drawing quota for the day, not wanting to cheat.
I sometimes look at all the incredible still life painters out there, especially on the new Daily Painters Originals group I am now part of (www.dailypaintersoriginals.com) and feel incredibly humbled. Thanks for the lovely comments about yesterday's simple "Billy Can". I hardly dared post him thinking him way too humble but I sure loved painting him.
