I made another drawing of the black teapot that sits on the horizon of the still life table. I decided that maybe the ellipse does matter after all so I redrew it to better match the appearance of the blue compotier.
I included a shadow. Things are going to have cast shadows similar to the ones that objects have in Bonnard’s painting though not all the objects have shadows yet in the various studies. The question of the shadows and what they shall look like is another piece of the big puzzle.
