Texture study

I bought this clay pitcher the other day for the express purpose of painting it. I love to paint gray objects, even more than I love to paint white ones. They reflect light in a beautiful muted way that is hard to describe and even harder to paint. The values are closer for one thing, so it's harder to get them right, making any attempt to paint a challenge. But I enjoy challenges now.

I added some complimentary food objects: a yellow lemon and a red-violet onion.

Very nice. It is nice that you are set up to paint anything at any moment in time. I need to arrange my space better.
