Still Life in progress

I started painting this still life today in a class designed to teach fundamental painting techniques -- not remotely my usual subject or approach to painting... and yet... I think I'm learning something.   Never having gone to art school, I've been learning by doing, not necessarily a bad thing.  Still, there are plenty of technical aspects -- the chemistry of painting-- that I know nothing about and if the paintings that come out of this are better for a little chemistry, all to the good.
