"Copper and Pittosporum"

Oil on stretched canvas. 8" x 10"

The previous 16" x 20" painting took many hours to complete - obviously not done in a day.  This copper pot is still a little weathered, but has more shine than the watering can. The pittosporum had a couple of sprigs of almost white leaves, which I thought would add interest and balance. The fallen white leaf was a happy accident. It fell exactly where I might have placed it. I'll figure out how to avoid the glare when taking photographs.
