This watercolor and gouache painting is depicting two tables with tablecloths and objects on top. It would be considered a still life or study. The first table is in the foreground and we see a shallow bowl of two white onions in center, and a crystal glass of water on the right side of image. The whole glass is not included within the picture plane. On the second table we see two empty bowls, they are both empty. This painting would be considered a still life or study.
