"Still Life (White on White)"

Oil on Canvas - 18" x 24"

 

 

Choosing to limit the palette of the still life objects to shades of white (with the exeception of the ice blue glass piece and the background) resulted in an opportunity to study subdued effects of reflected light, subtly modelling form. The warm blue becomes an obvious focal point pulling the eye to the sweet spot.

The motif was painted from life.
