Shelf

in this stage, I have painted the shelf upon which the ginger jar sits.

Painted in a mix of ultramarine and crimson, to give a bluey- grey feel . This will set off the jar colours nicely.




Nothing to do with the painting, but shelves remind me so much of my Irish auntie, who was always cautioning me not to get "left on the shelf"
I used to answer that "all the best china is left on the shelf - only the mugs get used!"
Not something you see so much of now, is it?
A cabinet stocked with Sunday best china.
Which has just given me another idea for a painting...
