Jam Jar Label Apricot

Multiple tries on these. I find them tough to paint.  First they are velvety, so they present no highlight, which helps more than I realized to bring the lighted area forward and convey roundness. Next, they are luminous, which means you've got to understand the mixing of yellows very well so that the clear yellows sing out against the muddier yellows and all this happens in the right passages. And last, they are sort of unassuming with their soft folded flesh. Like babies.


  1. Beautiful job!! Very peachy! The fabric is wonderful too--a perfect compliment.
