lemons and white jug again


(9x12)
Wanted to have another go at the jug, to try to get the ellipse at the mouth right ... "Try" being the operative word.
Also painted on a pre-colored ground, this time intentionally, but somehow it just doesn't have the glow of the first (below).  Maybe because, overall, it's cooler; also, the edges of the pitcher are harder, less lost.

Hi Laura,

It may not glow but it sparkles, gleams -- those lemons are amazing.
It's a beautiful painting.

I like your second version also.
But why oh why whenever we try to repaint a subject there is usually something that is lost.. Your right about the glow, but it's still such a beauty..
Did I tell you how glad I am to see you back? lol !
I'm traveling to the west coast for a couple of months, but will be watching for my favorite blogs via the internet. BJ

I must admit I really like both milk jugs. The two paintings just give a different feel and impression of the still life. I think both are beautiful!
