"Paint Tubes and Mediums"

Oil on Canvas - 6" x 8"

 

 

Still life is a wonderful genre since it provides the opportunity to study relationships in colour and form without the distractions of plein air or the issue of a moving model. This example was a quick set up of some painting materials found on the studio table in order to warm up for a longer session of work on a commission. I decided to set myself a time limit of one hour to work the image as directly as I could. I was quite pleased with the result; enough to feature it here.
