This month we are working on gray scale paintings and then completing them in color. Below is my completed still life.

This turned out really well, Judy! The atomizer (?) could use a bit of the blue that is in the background, so it feels more connected to the other 2 elements. I love the highlight on the mushroom, and the candle is really really good!!

Thanks for the suggestion. Alan. I had put a small amount near the base, but I can see that if I added some in other areas, it would really help. I knew there was something not quite right but couldn't figure it out. I think you identified it, perfectly. I think it may also benefit from a touch of red and green as if reflecting the candle. I'll see how it comes out and re-post it.

You did a beautiful job with this! I agree that some of the other color ought to be in the atomizer as it looks a bit disconnected as it is now.

Here's the revised version. I added reflections of the bucket into the atomizer along with more blue (hard to see) and some of the oranges of the cookie jar. I also added some of the brass color from the atomizer onto the cookie jar. I think it feels better now, more united. Thanks for the suggestion alan and Jan.

This is wonderful, Judy! Adding the color really unified it all and gave the atomizer so much more personality . The mushroom pottery and the candle holder are especially well done too.
