Bottles with Cup and Box

16"x20" oil on canvas. Simple, Morandi-ish set up where the negative space is as important as the positive. The light on the yellow background was so intense that it actually bounced back onto the table through the objects. Once I observed that, all bets were off. It was like having two light sources. The shadows became wonderful places of colors: table, object, and background. The table top changed from a solid field of purplish gray to stripes.
