This little pitcher is part of my Salvation Army "treasures". I'm finding the key to painting shiny objects is making sure you get the highlights and the reflections just right. In order to get the highlights to show up, you've got to make sure the surrounding color is dark enough. This can be tough, especially when the surrounding color is very light. As for reflections, the challenge is not making them too bright, which I seem to do every time! So I just darken them until they look right. I've been painting late at night and it's killin' me. I'm so glad the weekend is here!!
