Still Life with Radishes

This painting is another try at finishing in one session. It took about three. The clay pots were really hard to render faithfully because of the texture (it's a mix of grey and red with lots of rough and smooth surfaces.) Feel free to comment

Lately I've been trying to do still life paintings in one sitting. This one was done in two sessions, so at least I'm getting a little faster. I think I had a problem with getting the values right, even when I left out most of the details. The vase in front looked a lot brighter than the doll from what I saw, but I didn't push the contrast as much as I wanted to. Anyway, feel free to comment or criticize.
