Painting Silver and Roses

Silver & Roses
12 x 16 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

Working on depicting silver last week. It's easy to get too hard edged and literal on the reflections which I did at first, then had to scrape off the paint and start again. Basically I learned that the approach is similar to a ceramic vessel, get the big light and shadows first to capture the form and dimensionality, then add the reflections on much as you would add decoration or pattern on a ceramic vase. Form first, surface decoration  ( in this case reflections) later. I'll try to remember that.
