Painting 28

What can I say about this? Odd subject matter, but it's just another salt and pepper shaker, like the previous painting, just a tad more exotic. Another daily painting, working wet on wet, trying to get values, highlights and of course, the actual drawing of the object. I succeeded in drawing it correctly, but because of the subject matter, not sure if I'd ever be happy with it. One thing I would do differently is to tone down the background and would have made the upper dark and the lower area the lighter color and then pop out a nice shadow to ground the object. Attempting to paint a reflective surface was a good exercise and the daily paintings are valuable, and if I painted regularly, I think I would do them a bit more. However, for the sake of this blog, I'm glad I will not be filling it with quick paintings. That's not the point of all this. Size: 5 x 7
