Still Life

I've commented on this  one before, but, since I'm travelling right now, I thought it might bear repeating.

Repetition, the S Curve, and size variation all play major roles in this composition. 

If your subject is all one color, you might want to be inventive to avoid boredom.  Add color where there isn't much.  With these tan mushrooms, it was pretty important to add some color to give life to the subject. 

It's a good idea to overlap at some point too in order to form clusters rather than individal object.

My Naples Workshop begins on Monday so I should have some new paintings very soon!
