Practicing Oil Painting...

Since I spent a few weeks on my last colored pencil piece, I decided to do a quick study in oil before diving into my next oil piece. This painting of an old tarnished bowl was done in about hour last night, with light only from my easel lamp. It was interesting to paint something that would be difficult (if not impossible) to see in a photo, but the resulting painting is way too dark!
By the way, you can kind of make out the reflection of my head and easel lamp upside-down in the center of the inside of the bowl!
