Trusty Brown Pitcher

Here's a quick study I did the other night of my trusty brown still life pitcher.  I picked this up years ago at a holiday sale for a shared ceramics studio down the hall from Bridgeview's old location in Long Island City.  It's a nice form and a great size for New York City still life setups, where there's often not a lot of room.  I also find it's color rather interesting and challenging.  Lean too much in one direction in the painting and it looks drab and dull, lean too much the other way and it looks far too vibrant and bright.
