Session #400, Work #382

On my drive home today I was thinking about last nights still life and how much fun I had with trying to make since of all the subtle transitions of value and shapes in the glasses. And I wondered how I could make these transitions even more subtle and hidden, so I setup a still life with glasses on white.

 

Now, most of the values in this still life are all on the higher end, but I was presently surprised at all of the lower values that I could see. I figured that the glasses would be almost invisible against white, but I was wrong. I didn’t work long on this one, I was tired and I just wanted to use this one as a test for a longer study.

 

I think the next still life will have to have more bright lights on it and hopefully that will further brighten all of the values throughout.
