Copper Vase

The Daily Paintworks Challenge this week is to paint something "copper". One of the reasons I love doing the challenge is because it gives me a good reason to paint something that would never have crossed my mind otherwise. Copper? I don't have anything copper, so why would I think of it? Well, it's not too hard to find an image from various photo sharing websites, so I did just that, because I have never painted copper and I knew there was something to be learned from it.

I loved this beautiful simple image of a slender copper vase with it's single balloon flower and distinctive shadow. Very classy looking. And I found out that painting copper is hard!
