"West Coast Textures"
As winter settles in here, the garden has dissolved into a mess of 
sodden leaves and stalks.  Not much colourful out there to paint! 
So, I am using my collection of stones, twigs and shells as models.
 For this particular set up, I used a fairly bright spot light, 
which increased  the contrast from the previous painting. 
Stronger light makes the details easier to see, but also 
tends to wash away subtle tonalities.  It's a bit of a trick 
to keep it all in balance.
