Still Life

The other day a willow pattern bowl arrived via ebay so I started my next still life of the series. I have primed a piece of mdf and rubbed it down, then repeated this 3 times. For a detailed painting it pays to have a good flat surface with no flaws in it.
Next I sort out my composition and draw the outlines. Then the tiring bit, painting the detail. An hour or so at a time is enough before taking a break. It was nice and bright today so it was a good day to paint something this detailed. So above is the coffee pot well on its way with the bowl outlined in front.
