This was an exciting and challenging piece to work on. I can't say for sure but I might guess that it took me about 70 - 80 hours to complete. I worked from reference photos that I took in my home studio. I used an old silver bowl that I found in a local antique store and the antique lace cloth was an amazing eBay find!
There is something very appealing to me about a symphony of whites with just a touch of colour.
Here are some pics of the work as it was in progress:
