Clock Watching - Work in Progress 1


I thought I'd give the old alarm clock a last hoorah in a still life. Being smoothly metal it holds lots of lovely reflections that will be fascinating to play with.
Earlier this week I had some 3/4inch MDF cut into small panels. This one is 6" x 6" and had 4 coats of gesso before I began to paint. It has a very satisfying smooth surface and feels really great to work with.
