A pair of tulips in a lovely Russian vase, cast some interesting shadows on the back wall. Sometimes when it's too hot to go outside, an inside still life is just what is called for. I enjoy these still lives and vow to do more of them. They are a good exercise in seeing color. Placing the still life outside on a lovely day with shifting light is my next challenge. I have a dandy collection of tea cups that I'd like to paint sometime soon.
