A great watercolorist, Charles Reid, enjoyed painting still lifes that captured what people left lying around, rather than still lifes carefully composed by the artist. He suggests just pointing your brush at stuff and painting it. So I did that today. I painted my brush at stuff lying on the kitchen table.
I’m not exactly sure what this object is, but it resides in my kitchen, so I’m guessing it’s a pitcher. It was great fun to paint, whatever its function.
I painted this little scene from my kitchen, looking into my darkened dining room, with warm light in a window beyond.
