Garlic with Silver Cup - In Progress

I finished up the "Green Apple" painting this weekend and I have to say I'm really happy with how it turned out. I'll post up a final picture once I get a good shot taken.

Last night I started a new still life. This one features a reflective silver cup and a bulb of garlic. I really wanted to paint something metal. To this point I haven't painted anything reflective, so I thought it would be a good time to give it a try. The bulb of garlic I chose has a lot going on as well. The outer skin is peeling off creating a good amount of surface texture which I hope to capture. This piece will be quite a challenge for me but I am excited to get started.
