Chasing the shadows!

'Pin Cushion and Scissors'

6" x 6"
Sometime last week whilst looking for something, I came across these large dressmaking scissors and pin cushion stuck full of needles and pins. The scissors are really old fashioned ones and the pin cushion is the lid from an old sewing basket which I have owned for years. I decided they would make excellent subjects for a painting! The hazy sunlight through the window cast some gentle shadow areas which I wanted to capture. The sun seems to move round very quickly when you are trying to record shadows...however, very good for making you work quicker!
