Modern Vanitas (Finished)

This is the final version of my modern vanitas painting – oil on canvas. I had originally wanted to add more dimension to leaves in the background, but decided to leave them more muted. I’m really happy about the way the nail polish spill and the sunglasses turned out.

Although it isn’t perfect, I learned a lot by making this painting, and overall, I like the way it turned out. I used to tell myself that if I wasn’t having fun painting, I shouldn’t be painting. However, taking this oil painting class has helped me realize that sometimes I need to challenge myself. Painting something difficult can be very rewarding. Even if painting doesn’t come naturally to you, don’t be discouraged! Happy painting!
