I look at my recent still lives & feel a need for perfecting them & also loosening them up, and also that this is not quite the direction I want to go in. To do a still life first there is an “arrangement” to do lighting comes into that, and the lighting needs attention. I think I prefer to find things. One thing I like about this one is the attention to the backdrop, in the Teapot it was just digital paper, this time I’ve played around with pastels.

I respect that. I think he has his character in his images yet they are also very realistic. Compositions are good too. I will post one of his images here:
