Plums and Shadows

How is this painting different from yesterday's painting? The lighting is natural. I painted it with natural light coming in the window, shining on the plums and creating the shadows naturally. The photo is ok, but I think the colors are more subtle than the photo can capture.

What a difference with natural light. Your shadow colors are wonderful, also the contrast between light and dark. Great little painting!

Nice! And I love the idea of painting the same subject under different lighting conditions. It seems like one would learn a lot that way.
