6x6" acrylic on canvas board. SOLD
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.
