Had a nice session with Jenny from CA who came for a lesson.
This was painted for her from a photograph and contained a number of interesting elements; compositional issues, painting glass, how to make background elements interesting but not dominating, etc.

This is an interesting composition. The glasses are asked to balance more bulk on the left. I suppose it works because they are foreground. Katharine

I love this...so fresh!! Stan, I wish you started the courses when I was still in the USA, back in Italy now but still...never say never...I might be back in the States for a holiday and might be able to do both a holiday and a little painting!
