I have been trying different things out in my shadowbox to find a nice stilllife to paint.

What do you guys think of this one?

I thought of taking the left part off.

Dirk,

I like all but the overpowering coffee pot.  Was the satin (pretty!) backdrop supposed to go all the way around?

I think a still life with those pinks will be very pretty.  I want the dessert when you are done.

Thanks Mea.

I used my shirt for the backdrop, but it was not big enough to go all the way round.

Sorry, I ate the dessert myself after I took the picture. :)

Dirk i too though the cofee pot was over powering, maybe you want to play arround with the objects. In the painting I would lose the fork in the plate.  Maybe you could have a candle instead of the cofee pot.  I like the glow it gives.

Thanks Danielle. So the pot is out. (It is actually a tea pot). The candle is a great suggestion.

It is really helpful to get some imput, much better than figuring it all out by yourself. :thankyou:
Dirk

My hubby and I enjoyed it so much to build this shadow box and in between the fights and lots of coffee (and smokes) we did it.

Lovely still life.  Wow, you sure do know how to challenge yourself.  Look forward to the painting.

Thank Robin, Danielle and Mea. Mea I will never be able to paint that, why don't you try it?

Louisa, I don't think I have as much natural ability as you do.  It has far too many details for me at least for now.

You can do it - I'm sure of that.

Nicely done Louisa. If you aren't going to paint it-you really should-share it in the photo section!
