Painting #18: Michelle's Still Life

I went to Michelle's studio on Tuesday evening where she set up a still life that we painted from. I included the ugly vase and then discovered that Michelle and Julie didn't even include it in their paintings!!! Now - I ask you..."What was the vase there for in the first place?" I was an obedient student and put it in my composition. Oh well! The painting is 11" x 14" and is painted on 140 lb. FabrianoArtistico cold-pressed watercolor paper.

Gah! Those girls!! LOL I like the vase and do not find it ugly at all. Love your gorgeous colors and your work altogether is so pretty!

Thanks so much Sherry...I am glad you like the vase - it was very close to being cropped right off! :)It does add sort of a retro like look to the painting, though.

Oh Barb, whether meant to be there or not you've done a wonderful painting here. !
