This is basically a study of round edges against hard edges and cold white light against warm brown and red tones. I really enjoyed playing with the different surfaces.
I used a favorite textured technique with this, I find it a challenge to paint the image over all the bumps and ridges. When it comes time to do some shadows and highlights I do very light washes of colour over the ridges and that settles into the grooves creating a load of depth.
