I have entered the world of abstract still life and I'm so happy!
After spending the day painting with the wonderful artist Sally Ellis I have found a new exciting way of working by creating lots of texture and layers and using a more free approach to drawing. I want to keep the life in my still life compostitions!
This painting features my new John Lewis mug which I absolutely love, as I've got older I have become more fussy about what I drink out of, the weight, thickness and feel of a mug matters to me and I'm grateful to have the luxury of being able to choose these small things which bring me so much pleasure. I just love the colour, pattern and shape of these mugs and will be featuring them in future artworks so watch this space!
I have used crayon, acrylic paint and pencils on a stretched 18 x 24 inch canvas and sealed it with satin varnish.
I just love the calming simplicity and rustic rawness achieved by the layers and tones along with the colour scheme designed to make the clementines and candle pop.
