"Silver Fox Reflections"
I've been kind of busy and haven't done much painting.
This is a silver cup,probably a pencil holder that I found at my local Art store.
I've never tried to paint silver before and really wanted to do something like this.
Unfortunately,it was a sunny day when I had my photographic session with the siver
Fox and it was really hard to get a good photo.
I also started my sketch and tried to get the reflections as accurate as I could but I got lost
in the process.
When I started to paint I was very eager and wanted to finish it as soon as possible but
some work got in the way and had to leave it alone for a week or so.
When I came back to it, somehow; I had lost the "connection" I felt when I started it.
It was kind of fun and I'll probably try to do it again.
I'm going to take it out again and hopefully I'll get the silver effect that I'm looking for.
This was finished on June the 25th '12
