This demo was done during a day workshop at South Walsham last Friday. The set up was one of a few put together by the group. This is a regular venue for me and the set ups have certainly changed; there was a time they was so complex it looked as though we were setting up a stall at a flea market. Nowadays everything is pared down but not without its challenges. I was aware with this painting that the shadows on the whites needed to be strong enough to balance the strong value and colour of the plums and grapes.
