Shades of Green - Pastel Painting

As a still life artist I have quite a collection of odds and ends cluttering up my home expressly for the purpose of being a prop for one of my still life paintings.  For this painting I pulled out the greens, old greenish tinted bottles, a large green fabric ornament, and a small heavy green ornament.  I arranged them in a little alcove in my kitchen, where for a very short period of time I get some wonderful strong afternoon sun which is great for making some nice shadow action as well as excellent contrasts.
