I know I don't talk a lot about reflective surfaces, mainly because we don't do anything that complicated in my Bob Ross classes. However I thought I would mention a couple of my little tips for getting them on the canvas. First, don't be intimidated! Just paint/draw what you see. On something that is highly reflective, you see it, colors and all. If you notice in progress photos, I blocked in the pear and the lemon right on the coffee pot even though they are not a dimensional part of the painting. Second, keep it simple. Students always want to immediately jump into complicated paintings right away. I use fruit because it adds a nice splash of color, and the coffee pot, has a nice smooth surface. Nothing too complex. Third, try using only one light source. Putting the light on the side of your still life, can add some drama and cast some really nice shadows. Painting can often times be about "seeing" in both still life and landscape work. Happy Painting!!
