"Looking Fine" (er)

Today's painting is a modification of the one I posted day before yesterday. I decided the shadow really bugged me. I like this better. I got more accessories (props) at the Goodwill today. I really have as many as I need for now; it's just so fun to imagine painting the things I see. I am learning SO much. Today I finished one that depicts stainless steel salad fork and spoon. I painted it as I saw it, and the utensils didn't "read" correctly. Then I remembered Carol Marine saying that when she paints stainless, she always has to make it darker than it really is to look right. I tried that and it worked! At least I think it did.You can decide for yourselves when I post it tomorrow.
