Small Vase in Primaries

6x6" acrylic on canvas board. SOLD

I've finally got around to using this little vase in a still life! I bought it in a little shop on the Isle of Wight, which was full of all kinds of fascinating things- there were shelves and shelves of empty glass bottles, lots of crates of vases and jars for 50p each, old posters and collectables... I loved this guy's shape and the strong blue colour, and had to have him.

I paired it up with lemons and strawberries to make a composition focusing on the primary colours. More and more these days, I find myself painting only with white and primaries on my palette. I don't miss the secondaries as much as I thought I would.
