This watercolor has a fall season look with the apples and the colors. This still life includes old wooden paddles and a wood box with gold tole painted on the side. These items I picked up an estate sale where I often look for interesting items to put in my paintings. I set the objects on the lace for contrast. Notice how the light on the right side of the painting is warmer and brighter than the cool shadows on the left. The little pitcher has the lace reflected on the shiny surface.
