Bev Ellison Eggs and Teacup

Student Statement

Here is my first completed painting after watching one of your DVD’s. I tried to incorporate as many of your suggestions that I could: for example, varying the lights and darks and using color harmony through the painting, The painting is a little darker than the photo illustrates. My photography skills are not the best.

Halls Critique

Thanks for posting Bev. This piece has many fine qualities in terms of sense of light, form and composition.  Moving some of the warm ochres from the eggs into the white teacup works well in terms of the tonal harmony. In future still life pieces why don’t you explore more subtle violet background tones, where the violet is very quite and grayed with minimal color intensity. Intense backgrounds have the tendency to upstage subtle still life forms.
