Morning news

I am almost certain that a reflective black surface (my kitchen counter!) is the hardest thing to capture in paint. I so often put things down on it and  then change my mind because it is just too shiny and too dark. But this morning after my coffee I got up the courage to tackle it, maybe because there were so many objects on top of it. And also because I read something yesterday in my Charles Reid watercolour book. “…the temptation is to paint it as dark as it actually is. But very dark values should be treated with great respect and should rarely be made as dark as they seem.”
