Silver Bowl with Pears - WIP

The silver bowl had several value variations with subtle temperature changes. I used warm and cool color strings of grays working back and forth between the two to model the form and state the reflections. The “palette”, where little piles of colors are mixed and pushed around is mesmerizing to us paint nerds. Those little puddles are storytellers, they are a living chronicle of the painting’s creation.

Progress shots, wipe-out, first pass, color mixing, final pass.
