Gray Matters 3


My final study of this still life. Of course this is not a good painting. In my haste I completely neglected important elements, such composition.

On a positive note. It was a necessary failure for future successes.

  3. I don't know why you see it as a failure?? I don't see it... I think it's got a great rhythm, and the gray, well, what else would you do?
