You're the Tops - Oil painting still life


You're the Tops is a small painting, 8" x 10", oil on board.

The still life shows spinning tops, a marble, a block and jacks including a jack of hearts card (trust me, that's what it is) These are sitting on a chess board

I've never done a still life quite like this. I was experimenting with sharp and soft edges. The items in the foreground are fairly hard edged while those in the back are softer. I'm pretty happy with my results but Edges are something I will continue to work on
