"Little Book and Rose" oil on linen, 8"x10"
I think I managed to get the effect that I was after, the rose bathed in light, and the remaining light gradually fading out to the bottom of the vase. The colored ebauche worked out pretty well and the only area that I repainted was the vase. It was a little tricky with the merging cast shadows and form shadows. I'm using a different lighting setup now, I have a huge spotlight that holds five compact flourescent bulbs, of which I only used three. With all five of them on it's like a blazing sun. I'm thinking of getting a diffuser cover which another artist recommended to me.
