"Red on Red" Still life painting by Robin Weiss

"Red on Red"  10x10 oil on panel    $600

My studio mate, Leigh , lent me a big pile of fabric scraps to use as still life props. I set this color composition up in the studio under natural light .  The idea was to get a dramatic contrast between the red backdrop and the stark white vase.  Think I should have worked on it a little longer and resolved a few things like the leaves and stem of the camellia blossom. I have a problem with overworking paintings so sometimes fall short of actually finishing them to the best advantage....It's tricky!
