Another still life painting

I didn't finish the painting that is Wedgwood teacup's one. I want to take a rest for my eyes. And I'll continue to paint it soon. I was planning not to do anything today but I started painting a new still life painting. I made a simple set up in this time. I really need take a break.

Almost finish...

I'm always paint with natural light. I've started painting from late afternoon to evening for a few days. It was getting dark outside so that the painting became darker.
I'm going to work on it earlier tomorrow.

Title: Fruit with Blue Silk Fabric

This painting is a still life arrangement featuring fruit (an orange, a lemon, red grapes, green grapes)and red wine. The tablecloth in the painting was originally an antique kimono belt, which is called "obi" in Japanese. I came across this obi at an antique store in Japan and the design of the pattern caught my eye.
I saw the pattern reflecting in the silver bowl, it was so beautiful. That's why I wanted to paint it.

Continuing working on the painting

I couldn't start working earlier but I painted a lot today.

Started painting...

I got some fruit in this morning and set up still life since then. I started painting around two o'clock. It takes time to set up for decided composition and color.
I haven't been painting for almost ten months. I'm a kind of miss it.
I'm continuing working on it tomorrow too.
So I'm going to post new picture of the painting.

Before printing out Albert Einstein...

I spent a few nights researching Einstein's quotes. He left a lot of funny and good ones. There is a limited space to write the quotes on the plate. I picked some of them and wrote backwards. It's difficult to choose them but I enjoyed doing it.
I don't know when it's printing out, if it's possible to read the words.

Albert Einstein

I'm still working on the etching plate. Fixing it and printing out these process are over and over again. It takes time to finish fixing and making editions. In the meantime, I started drawing on Einstein's portrait the lithograph plate.

The test print

Well...the dark tone and the shadow of the scissors look okay but I'm not satisfy with the gradation on the table. I'm going to fix on the plate.
