large Painting still Life

Picnic

Thanks be to God the sun is shining.

It’s amazing the effect it has on us. I suddenly feel energized and ready to get stuff done! I’m still having to scrape the frost of the windscreen in the mornings with a credit card – must get one of those scraper things – but by 11am it’s gorgeous.

Only problem with all this sun is getting directional light on my still life subjects. I paint in a very bright kitchen. The light comes from all around and from big skylights so it’s difficult. I do use a box and a lamp. Do you have any suggestions?
