This is my first attempt at oil painting have only played with watercolours a couple of times before this years ago. Its a study of a christmas tree bauble. Would be good to get some feed back, would be greatly appreciated. Really struggling with blending colours together. Plus the colour seems to be a lot duller after a bit of drying.
The bouncelight past the shadow's terminator shouldn't be brighter than the midtones. Not to mention the terminator seems a little high up. Given the direction of the cast shadow, I suspect the issue might lie in the shape of the terminator.
Do 100 more (vary the objects and light source of course).
