Here is the finished study of the reflexive objects. It was done in three layers, the first was a monochromatic layer in a neutral color focusing on the opaque areas of the still-life. The second I added color and defined the main objects a bit more. This third layer involved more a little more color, finishing defining the objects, cooling down the study and adding transparent colors.
Here is a side by side of the first and second layers. You can see the huge difference between the two.
I’d like to announce that I have opened up a twitter feed for this blog! To check out the progress of future painting and their various layers as well as the sketches and drawing that don’t make it onto this blog follow me @ibrandonwaite
