My latest painting for FIN 221 at NIC was an acrylic painting on stretched canvas, approximately 3 feet square.
This is the painting at last week's class critique. It is on an easel, and I was not quite square to the canvas when I took the photo.

|I set these glasses on the table at home so I could judge shadows from overhead lighting.|
|I used this photo from home as a reference for the glass of red wine in the centre of the painting.|

|I had not sketched the flowers originally, so I made them up and used this photo as a reference for a yellow chrysanthemum.|
