More Practice: Tulip in a Wine Bottle, and a Pear

8 x 10 Tulip in a Wine Bottle, and a Pear

Reworked this painting from about 10 years ago that was on my shelf. It is a still life from a 171 Cedar Arts class.  Don't have a photo reference,  so it was fun to imagine how the light might fall in the space, and to create a tulip form.  I can see more that I could do, but for now I am satisfied with the practice.

When I first painted it the flower was ill-defined, and the draperies in the background were distracting. The shadows weren't correct, so the pear looked like it was floating.
