"Summer Contained" by Carolina Daley

I am so excited to be part of Still Life Artists International! This is my first blog post ever, so I chose one of my favorite paintings, Summer Contained. I set up a composition with glass bottles and seashells, but it wasn't coming together until a shaft of sunlight came in from the window and suddenly it had this fascinating interplay of angles of light and shadow. I kept the colors as monochromatic as possible to leave the focus on the play of light.
