About the photo reference
Here is another amazing play of light, shadows and reflections. There are too many to list, all caused by the single upper left sunlight coming through the window.
"As is" the photo reference looks a little busy. Consequently, your task in this challenge is to slightly simplify (probably background), and introduce mystery and desired emotions. The pot is made of arcopal, slightly transparent and milk white in color.
Please send a photo of your painting the latest by October 30. The next painting reference will be posted on Sunday October 31.
