Almost there

In progress: untitled still life
oil on panel
8 x 8 inches (20 x 20 cm)

A few more hours' work and this will be finished. Since I probably won't photograph it again until it's dried and varnished, I thought I'd put this final in-progress shot up.

Working on this painting in particular, I found myself mindful of how colors become grays as the objects turn away from the light. This is a very well-known phenomenon, but still beautiful to observe, and gratifying to capture.
