Candle

I haven't had much time to paint this week, but today I managed to put in an hour on the still life I started last week. I focused on the rearmost object, the candle. I like the irregular shapes around the wick. I tentatively plan to add a little statute of a king on a drum; that's his cast shadow on the candle.

Here's the whole piece; the rest is still just a sketch. I hope to fix that in the coming days!
