"Two on Top", oil on canvas, 5x7
This painting is a good reminder to myself of how challenging the set-up stage can be of even the most simple still life. Probably a product of there being so many possible compositions for these subjects in a 5x7 format.
This is where the "thumbnail" sketch comes in handy. Set the thing up, light it, sketch it in under two minutes, and decide if the composition works or not.
