Fall Hot Chocolate

Fall Hot Chocolate
Oil on Canvas

The weather has finally begun to turn, and so have the leaves.  It's time to stock up on hot chocolate, or as my grandmother calls it, cocoa.  I couldn't resist making it into a still life, especially with the teapot.

I found I was definitely more comfortable with creating form and depth on this one.  I'm declaring myself over the intial hump.  Of course, humps are like hills, and have a way of being one behind another.  Mastering perspective, for example, is like looking for a mountain pass.  Definitely more practice is needed, but overall getting better.
