"White Set" --- SOLD

I decided to really focus on value with this painting, and what better colors than black and white. I couldn't leave out color altogether though, hence the orange. I think I would probably benefit from doing a value study before EVERY painting, but who's got the time?! I am very happy with how the polka-dot cup reflects the orange.

Hi Carol, I was having the same thoughts about tone yesterday too. My eye went right to that orange reflection but I also love the highlight area on the palte near the orange. good stuff.

Carol, I recently found your blog and am enjoying your work. I really like this too - and my eye is drawn to the orange reflection on the pot. Nice work, I'll keep watching!

Ah, the illustration of 'white isn't white'.
Agree with the others. You make it look so easy.
