WIP: Apples and Japanese Lamp - Day 1

18 x 24 inches, oil on canvas, day 1.

I thought it would be interesting to compose a painting around repeating round shapes and asymmetrical arcs. I'm sort of obsessed with the teardrop vase shapes right now too.

Normally I wouldn't put so much detail into an underpainting, but I was really enjoying this.

Lisa, this composition looks so interesting. I also don't usually do such intensive underpainting and I wonder what strategies you are going to use to start placing on the final colours. Look forward to seeing that.
By the way your other blog, thinking about thinking etc is great. Will keep an eye on that.
