Magnifying Glass

A turnip and a pomegranate may seem like unusual still life partners with a toy duck, but then a duck on a trike is not an every day thing either.  I’m using a magnifying glass to help me see details. Knowing just where a highlight starts and finishes, and how a shape slips into shadow, helps me to achieve a realistic look in the painting I am doing of these unusual companions.

The magnifying glass brings into clear view details that might otherwise have been overlooked.
