I remember when fruit came without stickers. I spent two hours drawing sliver ware today, knowing they will go in still lifes at some point. It is drudgery, but I can't paint something I can't draw. So it is back to basics. In the traditional art schools, students spent months drawing plaster casts before they moved on to painting. I need to reposition my shadow box so I can look down a bit on my subject and see the shadows! I also want to find a surface I can use to capture reflections.
