Posting another painting from a couple Novembers ago.  This still life was one in which I was challenged to create a damask setting with its reflected light on the fabric, the pattern in the weave and shadows.  Also, of course, I wanted to get the deep reds and green of the apples with their reflected light. 
I used a very traditional approach - starting with a grisaille painting. 

It would be the perfect addition to a dining room or kitchen!  I'd love to package it up and send it to you!
