Coffee #2

I took down an as yet unpainted brass jug from the shelf, teamed it up with an antique French coffee mill and a few Nespresso pods, and arranged this still life.
The first picture is the sketch to determine values and base colours, using only hard pastels (mostly pencils) and Clairefontaine Pastelmat.
The second picture is one of further development of the brass jug and some of the pods, moving to softer pastels - a mix of Rembrandt, Sennelier for the greens, and Schminke for the warm greys.
