It's Not Often Black or White

I found this black cup recently at a thrift store, and I've had it sitting on my little staging table ever since. Yesterday I put a white cup down beside it and noticed the cool reflections happening, of the white cups off the black one. It's a tough thing to paint because your brain tells you the reflection is "white," but in actuality the value of the reflection is MUCH darker than the white cups. So I'm pretty damn proud of that little moment there.

Hello Carol;
It has been very good, I like the tests and the lights, in short, how you have solved the issue.

You taught me a lot and I never get tired seeing these beautiful paintings!
