This still life is going up again to show warm light on cup. The other still life with Peonies was painted with cool light. I really don't like painting with cool light.I think this is the last cool light painting.

This is a painting I worked over. I like the blue background better.I also painted another cut painting with a different light bulb.

This was my first time painting with a cold light bulb. So my hope was to see cool light and warm shadows. But my studio has so much light from the south that I couldn't see the colors very well. I'll try again, but right now I like warm light and cool shadows better.
