    Still life

    Have given it yet another try, just to work on reflections and shadows. No reference photo, so the subject has nothing to catch attention, just the jug! Seek suggestions from all please.

    I know you were responding to D.O.'s suggestions, so I won't comment on that for when they come in and say something again, if they're so motivated. But it's got good stuff happening.

    Probably the thing I would recommend in the case of actual geometric objects, is to be aware of how you're creating volume, to make certain the volume seems to hold the shapes. It's just a bit off. And that's just a matter of fine tuning the values and the contours and such so that the volume reads appropriately -- ie. the bulges are in the right place and of the right dimension so it doesn't flatten out too much or bulge too much or whatever. That's largely a matter of how the shadows fall (values describing contour).

    (look at the angle down on the pitcher and table which is higher and the cup which is lower/narrower meaning the eye is lower when looking at it, compared with the other shapes.) The angles are in disagreement about where the point of view is - as an example. That's in the drawing stage often times that you work that out. Sometimes it can be corrected in the painting stage. But it's easier to get it right before painting has committed to it.).

    Anyway, nice one.
