What can be a better still life subject if you decided to focus on color? I technically bought these blocks for my daughter. Well, not that she doesn't enjoy them but I am the one who got very attached to them. First, they are vintage from the 80th - my childhood era, and the second, I like how they feel and look. Again it might be a reminder of my childhood. And I liked the vibrant colors. To be honest I specifically bought those for color studies.
I saw a couple of interesting color changes such as red in the pink cylinder, different colors of the shadows. I think I might paint several different color combinations in the future.
