Still Life (1)

Title: Still Life (1)
Medium: Oils on Canvas
Size: 30 x 40 inches

A still life that I've been working on for a few years now, on and off, hating it then loving it, but finally got it finished. It's been sitting in my studio looking sorry for itself for a long time. I had contemplated on painting over it as it just didn't seem to be going anywhere, but I picked it up and persevered with it. I surprised myself as towards the end I was enjoying working on this piece so much that I was sad to see it completed. The scale of it was a challenge as well as composition, having solid objects along side transparent & light reflecting ones did test me. This is probably my first ever still life, but it hasn't put me off creating more in the future.
