The Old Settler - Study #1

Being rusty, I thought I'd warm up with some studies of old containers that were found in my grandparents' house in Aliquippa, PA, a mill town. There about 20. This is the first one I chose because I don't know what black rainwater is, do you? One of my favorite aunts, Aunt Niece, gave them to me, saying that I would appreciate them. She didn't want to throw them away and now I have held on to them for 20 years since.
Need to work on reducing the glare on the subject and getting the temperature correct. I do like the background. This is the first time I've used the new studio wall color for it. Not sure if I like the shiny stool I used as the ground surface.
