I decided to use a fresh canvas for this painting, mainly because I actually had one. I was sick last week and spent several evenings stretching and priming canvases. Feels like a waste of time but it is nice to work on a white surface now and then. This time I decided to work from a late-summer pastel as I just can't face up to still lifes yet. They feel so wintery. Following is the progression from drawing to finished painting. What I don't know is if it looks better at the next-to-the-last stage or the last one. I am open to input!!
