It's been a while since I've posted anything.
I was having a dry spell coming up with subject matter so I went back to something simple that I could do without too much stressing out over it.
This is a ceramic pot with a wooden stick used for ringing a meditation bell inside of it and some sandalwood beads hanging off the edge. It sits on top of a yellow Chinese box. The beads have two additional beads of tiny skulls carved from bone. Those gave me a bit of trouble because I kept painting them in too high a value.
I have noticed how taking photos of paintings tend to blow out the highlights.
