Oil Exercise XXVI [Still Life, First Attempt]

Tried the first still life painting. Chiaroscuro worked surprisingly well. Did the dark tones, midtones and light tones with Burned Sienna, although a darker shade of brown such as Burned Umber or VanDyke Brown would have worked match better. Application of colour though failed completely. This could be due to the medioum i used (totally inapropriate), the filbert brushes, the quality of pigment in the oils used and of course seer incompetence! … back to the easel.
