Lilacs at Home

I had such fun doing lilacs in art class on Wednesday that I decided to try doing some of my own today. I don't have great places to set up still lifes, with cool lighting and all - but I figured I'd just set it up on my dining room table, which is what I did.

Hmmm, it came out sort of funky looking, though it was certainly fun to do. I finally stopped as it began to get overcast and I was losing the sunlight and shadows. But I might still be able to work on in another time. Maybe I'll go take a photo before the lilacs die.

P.S. - Since I always stuggle with symmetry on vases and things like that I decided I would try the technique of my fellow student from art class, and set up a comp that didn't use the entire vase.
