"Little Brown Pot" oil 11 x 14

Artist Keith Campbell lent me the series of DVDs by Helen van Wyk who died in 1994 - in this still life from my kitchen I used many of the tips and principles from her TV series.   I followed her classic European way of painting; using acrylic underpainting in greys, oil overpainting in colour, a composition of simple elements, soft edges, "whoop-si-doos" and a flourish of brushwork. I'd be interested in your COMMENTS please.
