Posting another painting from a couple Novembers ago. This still life was one in which I was challenged to create a damask setting with its reflected light on the fabric, the pattern in the weave and shadows. Also, of course, I wanted to get the deep reds and green of the apples with their reflected light.
I used a very traditional approach - starting with a grisaille painting.
It would be the perfect addition to a dining room or kitchen! I'd love to package it up and send it to you!
