I turned the painting in the direction that the club would be vertical and used short strokes along a ruler. First using a dark colour and then highlight colours. As for the legs, a glazing technique was used applying translucent colour and then opaque colour for highlight.

I think this picture is very attractive. The color contrasts get my attention and the warm colors draw me in. Beautiful, embracing.

Thank you Eileen, I'm so glad you like it! I've had it framed and now it has pride of place on my kitchen wall. Thanks!

I LOVE THIS! It's just the right mix of realistic representation and artistic vision. In other words, you can tell it's a painting that has been colored by the artist's perspective it's not just a copy of reality. I've never understood the appeal of total realism because, why? We have cameras to show us "reality" but only the artist can show us their "inner reality" and help us see through his or her mind's eye.

Many thanks Delaney! As this was my very first painting - your comments have given me the confidence to paint more. I thank you for that!
