Light's Out

Another 30 minute study.  I am also realizing that the reason I don't do a lot more "still lifes"  is because my lighting is less than ideal.  My "studio" is our sunroom so it is flooded with natural light, normally good, but not when I want dramatic shadowing! This is also pretty accurate for proportions, it's a tiny blue glass bowl. One stroke and leave it, that's my new mantra! This is a 5 x 7 acrylic on canvas.  C + C always appreciated.

About Christina Evans


I was born in New Jersey, my family moved to California when I was young and now I am living the country life in Spotsylvania, Virginia with my own family.  I paint in an impressionistic style and the subject of my work is always light and the mood associated with it.  I use photographs, sketches and memory to capture the light and shadows and the essence of a particular place.   With a supportive husband and two children who love to paint along with me, I have the wonderful opportunity to pursue what I love to do.  I appreciate all feedback on this site,  I think that is the best way to keep learning and improving.
