Amarylis - A Work in Progress

Today is the second last still life class of the year at KAGS, and with only half of the class being able to be here we decided to use things that were in the building.

We used one of the pots of Amaryllis that were decorating the Gallery and found a number of bowls, cups and a copper kettle to place on a mirror for our display.

I couldn't decide if I wanted to do a vertical painting to include the Amaryllis or to do a horizontal one of just a few of the many items that were available. In the end I did a drawing of each one and I will post the other after I have put down at least some of the under painting.

I did a fair amount of the under painting on this vertical piece, but I am still not very happy with the results. Who knows, perhaps with a little more work on it and some correcting of things that I can see are wrong, I may change my mind.

I will post this painting at a later date once more of it is finished.
