Lets start the ball rolling....

So here we are, my first oil painting. Well, the first I'm willing to publish. I started this at the Gold Coast Art School where I learned my basics. The copper pot is a wee bit wonky and the lemon is super shiny, but it is a nice still life to start on.


  1. Your composition is strong, and those reflections are spot on.

  2. Thank you Sherry :) I'm going to try another one next week, clearer and more bottles, not thats a challenge!

  3. I'm not sure what ..."wonky" means, but if it means LOVELY, I agree. I love the shape of the pot, the dark edges that fade into the background, and the lights that reflect the colors of the lemons and other objects!
