Empty Bowl

The Outsiders, 6 x 6 " oil on panel, ©2013, Fay Terry
Little bowls like this are fun to paint and I may do this one again because I learned a lot from doing it.  The bowl is actually closer to red but the light hitting it made it look very orangey and put orange into the shadows, too. I did eat the orange sections when I was finished so I'll have to cut up more.

Happy May Day to you. My mother used to tell me about a May first tradition of taking small goodie baskets and flowers to the house of a neighborhood friend, ringing the doorbell and leaving without getting caught so they would not see who left the basket. 

Thanks for viewing my art. 


  1. Charming. I like the idea of painting little bowls.

  2. Beautiful handling of the light and values on the bowl..Pleasing painting..nice warm colors
