When looking for interesting subjects to use for painting lessons, not only do I look for something challenging and fun to paint but also a subject that sits well with the current lesson library. This interesting subject is quite different from other lessons in the still life category and was immensely rewarding to paint. The reflections in the silver may look like they are painted using a mixture of brush and Harry Potter's wand but they're actually quite easy to recreate. Give this lesson a go; it's really fun and will hone your techniques!
