The subject of this painting is to represent three vases with different sizes and shapes. I want to make people happy with a sunny day and very bright colorful vases. In this oil painting, I painted a still-life of simple objects that have a matte finish and are not shiny or reflective. Each vase was selected to meet the requirements of temperature and color. I chose a combination of various color objects with different values and chroma, such as the bright white vase and the dull blue vase. I also have the dark blue vase and the light white vase. I looked for warm colors, such as the orange and red warm vase and cool colors such as the blue vase. This painting made a great study of light and dark and dull and bright colors. I used bright and dull colors to create light and build a three-dimensional form. The shadows cast from opaque objects are usually darker near the base of the object.
