New painting

12" x 16"
oil on stretched canvas

Staying with the mirror and reflections theme, I began a new painting this afternoon on a larger canvas so I can work the objects pretty much life size.  I only had an hour to spend on it but I'm happy with it thus far. I used  my little viewfinder to find the right 'crop' and to help place the composition quickly on canvas. I find using a viewfinder can save alot of time. I painted a ground of pale violet being the complementary colour of yellow, the predominant colour in the composition. I'm also using violet in the shadow areas as it will enhance the yellow and help make it 'zing'.
